Impact Florida’s inaugural 2019 Education Summit “Bridging the Opportunity Gaps in Classrooms,” brought together Florida education leaders — from district to state leaders and partners — to talk about and learn how rigorous content, strong instruction, deep engagement, and high expectations together impact student learning. Attendees discussed challenges and barriers to bridging the opportunity gap in classrooms, heard from national experts and peers about best practices, and walked away with specific next steps to effectively advocate for the supports needed to provide all students the opportunity to learn.
If you missed the summit, we’ve captured many of our plenary sessions for you to view or share with others.
