Will the 2020 Carnegie Foundation Summit on Improvement in Education be held in San Francisco this April?
Given the strong recommendations that have recently come from local civic leaders and public health officials regarding the spread of COVID-19, we saw no choice other than to move the April 1–3 Summit from a physical location to a virtual space. Plans are underway to design and deliver a digital Summit experience with the same high quality that we have delivered at our six previous in-person annual conferences. Most of the program will be presented live via ZOOM Meetings—we will do our best to manage a schedule that also works across U.S. time zones—while other sessions will be recorded for on-demand viewing. The live sessions will also be recorded so that they may be accessed by those attendees unable to view the program at the scheduled times. On a positive note, this delivery increases access to the number of sessions that attendees can view and the number of people who can view them. Please stay tuned for additional information.
