Today’s Superintendent Call and Webinar

I just finished a wonderful Superintendent Call and Webinar with our community of superintendents. Thank you to all who joined us for the call. I want to especially thank Secretary Duncan, Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, and Assistant Superintendent Nikolai Vitti for helping to lead the call.

The conference call was recorded, and will be available for replay for the next month. If you missed the call, you can listen in by dialing the following number: 888.566.0041.

In addition, I know some of you weren’t able to get to the webinar, so I’m attaching a copy of the PowerPoint presentation here. I hope this is helpful to you, and I look forward to speaking to you again during our next call.
