Nearly 500 educators from eight states attended the 6th Annual “College For All” conference earlier this month.

The conference was put together for school systems who wanted to learn more about the district’s Early College, Parental Engagement, Dual Language and Back-on-Track to college programs.

Educators from New York, Indiana, Illinois, Colorado, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and California were at the conference.

“I am so impressed with the partnership the district has with the higher ed institutions, parents, and the community,” said Gayle Williams, College Connections Coach at Ivy Tech College in Indiana said in a press release. “I have loved getting to meet educators from all over the country. It’s great to learn ways to help our program grow. I love to hear how students are aware that they are college students. Students are being prepared for the real world.”

The conference was held on November 14 and 15.
