The Battelle for Kids Spring Superintendent Summit is a unique opportunity to recharge, learn, and connect with education leaders nationwide. 

The 2023 summit is March 8-9 in Columbus, OH. 

Because students are at the heart of our mission, Battelle for Kids is opening registration to all superintendents so that we can collectively advance deeper learning for every student.  

This intimate, interactive, and collaborative experience will help you apply compelling new thinking, research, tools, and practices to scale and sustain deeper learning across your district. Superintendents may also register one other leadership team member to join. 

In this 1.5-day experience, system leaders will: 

  • Reflect on and expand your leadership practices around the science of hope, belonging, and deeper learning. 

  • Engage with a panel featuring industry experts and CEOs to discuss the skills, mindsets, and competencies of the workforce landscape shifts. 

  • Participate in an exclusive leadership experience designed for educators at the Columbus Museum of Art. 

  • Engage with and learn from other innovative and transformative leaders around the country. 

Registration is limited. Register today.
