2022 Summit

The 2022 NCSSS Leadership Summit looked at putting diversity, equity, and inclusion at the forefront of our work as specialized STEM schools. Participants engaged in topics that impact all levels of an institution, such as culture, hiring practices, placement testing practices, and curriculum. Our ability to take action now will shape the experience of current and future generations of students.

Why Attend the Summit?

The NCSSS mission is to advance STEM education by providing professional development and networking opportunities for educators and learning experiences for students; to serve as a national resource for STEM schools and programs in partnership with educational, corporate, and international organizations; and to inform policymakers on STEM education.

The annual Leadership Summit provides professional development for current and aspiring administrators and heads of school. You will engage with like-minded individuals and take away ideas you can immediately implement in your schools and your classrooms. 

The summit offered great opportunities for discussion with other school leaders. It was reassuring to see that so many similar schools are experiencing the same issues and being able to both empathize and problem solve together was an invaluable resource.
