District Administration has provided zSpace with the opportunity to support innovative district leaders in developing a vision for the integration of augmented and virtual reality into their STEM and CTE programs.  Through structured learning experiences over the course of 2.5 days, we are able to begin building partnerships by understanding the unique needs of participating districts and helping them solve the instructional issues faced.

I attended the first DA Leadership Institute and have attended one every year. The collegiality among superintendents in attendance is unprecedented and allows you the ability to build professional networks.

Scott Dutey

Being a member of DALI has allowed me to grow as a Superintendent and learn from others each time I attend a summit.  The ability to have meaningful conversations about issues we are dealing with on a daily basis with other district administrators is invaluable.  I look forward to each summit and hearing the latest innovations from the business partners helps keep me ahead of the game.  We are treated unbelievably well and the locations of each summit are first-class.  I encourage any administrator to try one of the summits to see for themselves how impactful they can be

The challenges we face in K-12 are unique and ever changing, the District Administration CIO Summit convenes seasoned thought leaders to help navigate those waters. From start to finish, the program is salient to our charge, forward thinking and rooted in real experiences instead of abstract notions of best practice. If you seek to move your K12 IT organization from a tactical to a strategic mindset, the District Administration program should be considered compulsory.

I appreciated the level of networking and collaboration from the various participants from all over the country. I was able to hone in into some skills I hadn’t previously considered. I had the opportunity to meet some friends and hear experiences and their trajectories and hear their leadership stories that helped shape my own.

This was such a beneficial event. To be surrounded by like-minded people and having the opportunity to learn amongst my peers was great. There is nothing like this for CAO’s. The experience was invaluable.
