DeWitt to Host Day of Conversation



Invitation to a Day of Conversation

You are invited to participate in the DeWitt Day of Conversation on October 21, 2015. A Day of Conversation is an ideal opportunity to share questions, strategies, knowledge, dreams and ideas with other educational leaders in a non-competitive environment. This is an active involvement format. The focus is on engaging in conversations about ways to improve educational opportunities, coupled with practical suggestions from participants on how to achieve those ideals.
