Idea Exchanges

During this year’s conference we will hold “Idea Exchanges:” small group conversations matched to the core areas of Student Success 2025. Education, government, nonprofit, and business leaders will facilitate these informal conversations to bring participants together around a variety of topics, from innovative practices happening in classrooms around Delaware, to helping students achieve success in college and careers. Idea Exchanges will provide participants a chance to share and learn collaboratively from others, receive answers to their questions, find ways to get involved, connect work underway and identify opportunities to make progress.
