First National Summit for Principal Supervisors to Feature Film Premiere and Book Signing

Monday, March 07, 2016
Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert W. Runcie is proud to be the official host of the South Florida film premiere and book signing of “Most Likely to Succeed,” with co-author, filmmaker and Expert in Residence at Harvard University, Tony Wagner. This special event is part of the first National Summit for Principal Supervisors at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, May 11 – 13, 2016.

“Most Likely to Succeed” presents a new vision of American education, which places wonder, creativity and initiative at the heart of the learning process, and prepares students for today’s economy. The film and book offer parents and educators a crucial guide to getting the best for children, and provides a roadmap for policymakers and opinion leaders.

The National Summit for Principal Supervisors is designed to provide innovative and critical training for education leaders. It follows a study released by the Council of Great City Schools, which revealed school districts increasingly rely on principal supervisors and the important role they play in supporting principals.

Nearly 200 district leaders and principal supervisors representing several states and school districts across the country are registered for the conference. Summit partners include McGraw Hill, Edgenuity, the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, Curriculum Associates, Learning Sciences International, Promethean, NWEA and Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital.

Movie registration takes place on Friday, May 13, 2016, at 10:45 a.m. The film will show promptly at noon.  Conference registration and movie premiere fees include lunch and a copy of the book, “Most Likely to Succeed.”  For movie tickets and information on attending the summit, visit www.principalsummit.com or call 754-321-3636.
