SUNDERLAND - Dan French, Superintendent for the Bennington-Rutland Supervisory Union (BRSU), has been nominated to participate in the Connected Superintendents' Summit in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 7, 2014. U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and senior officials from the White House and U.S. Department of Education will welcome some of the nation's 14,000 superintendents to recognize them for their leadership in helping to transition schools to digital learning.

This first-ever Connected Superintendents' Summit will provide opportunities for leaders from district, charter, and private schools to share lessons learned with each other and with U.S. Department of Education staff to help disseminate promising approaches across the nation. In preparation for this national Summit, Superintendent French has also been invited to give input into the content and direction of the Summit and will travel to Washington next week to meet with Department staff and other superintendents from around the country to help develop the Summit's program. Superintendent French has been the Superintendent of Schools for the BRSU since 2007. He was the Vermont Superintendent of the Year in 2009, and is a frequent presenter at state, regional, and national conferences on personalizing student learning using technology.
