Collaborative District Leadership

Facilitating Change Management at the District Level

The Innovation West Forum is a premier gathering for senior cabinet members and district administrators from across the country with the goal of encouraging innovation in teaching and learning and maximizing current technologies and funding to advance student achievement.

What is your district doing to enable students and teachers to have the digital access they need in order to turn personalized learning into a reality? How do we create a community of educators and leaders that are committed to professional development? 

This “Think Tank” forum is an invitation-only, exclusive opportunity for district leaders who are committed to advancing digital learning.  As districts strive to achieve digital convergence and effective departmental collaboration, it is imperative that we look to the innovators, evangelists and thought leaders who can share industry best practices and models of excellence.

Whether you are blazing a trail at the forefront of 21st Century Digital Learning or searching for ways to collaborate and learn with your peers, the Innovation West Forum's unique blend of Strategy Sessions, Keynote Panels, Collaborative Roundtables, Private Business Meetings and the Innovation Showcase are excellent ways to share honest feedback, address critical challenges and take away pragmatic solutions that can be implemented upon return to your district.

We understand that every conversation, strategic discussion and technology implementation should culminate in an attainable vision for student achievement. We strive to work with and listen to our district leaders and partners to make that vision a reality.


Immersed in high tech, collaborative learning environments, I experienced the highest quality personalized professional development I have ever received.
