Executive District Leaders' Roundtable

Executive District Leader’s Roundtable members are any central office administrator below the rank of superintendent (e.g., deputy, assistant, or associate superintendent; district director, etc.) who is a member of CAPSS. Our members typically have responsibilities in curriculum, instruction, and supervision/ evaluation practices

Our Roundtable meets regularly throughout the year and typically focuses on topics essential to the executive district leaders’ role. These informative sessions are planned by members and offer opportunities for networking and sharing of best practices. Due to Covid-19, our sessions will be offered via ZOOM for the 20-21 school year with the possibility of an in-person, extended meeting in April*.

ZOOM sessions will run from 8:15am - 9:45am
