Trailblazers and key leaders in K–12 education will deliver a breadth of knowledge, with facilitated planning time for teams to adapt the best practices to their own context and challenges.

TFS founder and CEO Mark C. Perna says, “The goal of the Education with Purpose conference is to create a collaborative gathering in education and workforce development. The team-oriented format will foster an environment where organizations and key stakeholders can work together through the concepts learned to create a custom plan for their community and region.
