Working Groups

 

Throughout the year, Digital Promise hosts working groups for League of Innovative Schools members on topics our members want to pursue. Working groups are led by superintendents or other district leaders and are supported by Digital Promise.

Working groups focus on a broad range of issues, ensuring that the League remains relevant to the changing needs of district superintendents. Working group topics include the following:

The League also convenes an Advisory Committee, which assists in developing the Digital Promise organizational charter, shaping League priorities, and selecting new members. The committee is currently chaired by Steven Webb, superintendent of Vancouver Public Schools in Washington.
