Leadership Summits

Regional Leadership Summits stimulate community-wide engagement with topics that challenge participants to solve problems in creative and strategic ways. Hosted twice each year, once in Northern Nevada and once in Southern Nevada, these summits allow community stakeholders to immerse themselves in new ideas and best practices from both the private and education sectors. Featuring nationally-renowned scholars and practitioners, summit topics have included the No Time to Lose report by the National Conference of State Legislatures on building a world-class education system; and increasing equity and diversity of staff for all students.
