Theme: ‘Unity for Youth’

Each year, education professionals from across the state and around the country attend this summit to access high quality professional development, information on the latest trends and proven best practices in the field of Indian education. We seek to showcase successful projects, programs and initiatives for all ages, from preschool to post-secondary.


Some of this year’s sessions will be one hour informational sessions. Some sessions will be two hours long, with the first hour intended to be informational. The second hour will be designated for attendees to work together in small groups to develop action plans based on the information presented.

The summit will be organized into the following strands:

  • Achievement
  • Culture and Language
  • Success from Within
  • Building Future Leaders
