attend the 2012 Excellence in Urban Education Symposium May 23-25, 2012
in San Diego, CA. Please join our returning attendees who have called
the NCUST Symposium the most powerful professional development
experience of the year!
The National Center for Urban School Transformation (NCUST) spotlights the nation’s top urban schools that achieve exceptional academic results. Through the National Excellence in Urban Education Award, NCUST rewards outstanding schools and studies their successes. Our Excellence in Urban Education Annual Symposium provides a showcase for our award winners and offers compelling evidence that schools in some of the nation’s poorest neighborhoods are changing students’ lives.
attending the Symposium become convinced that we have no good excuses
for settling for lower levels of academic results. For many educators,
the symposium is an important first step in the journey to academic
excellence. Frequently school and district teams exit the symposium with specific plans regarding how they will break down barriers to achievement, build a data-focused, collaborative learning community, and enable all students to learn.
