Upstate Education Spectrum Fall Forum

Meeting of Upstate Public School Superintendents, College/University Presidents/Provosts and Business Leaders
Thursday, September 20th | GSP International Airport

Please join us on Thursday, September 20th, for the fall gathering of the Upstate's Education Spectrum.  This is an unique opportunity for leaders from all of the public school districts, technical colleges, two and four year colleges and universities, as well as business and industry in the region to come together to discuss and work on key issues impacting education entities in the Upstate

Upstate Public School Superintendents, College & University Presidents & Provosts and Business Leaders met for the first time in February 2018, where they identified and discussed areas for collaboration and alignment.  Following the February gathering, participants provided a clear direction for moving forward. 

Thus, the September 20th forum will look at the following... 

• Education & Career Pathways 
• K-12 Teacher Shortage

We hope you share our excitement for the positive possibilities this collaborative effort across the education and business spectrum can have for enhancing opportunities for our students and community.
