The annual LEAD Conference will be held at the Music City Center (MCC) in Nashville, Tennessee on November 5-7, 2019. LEAD 2019 will offer large TDOE led sessions that will provide a deep dive into the department’s new strategic plan. In addition to those sessions, large-group articulated pathway sessions will be offered. These pathways will be composed of interrelated sessions designed to lead to deeper learning about and understanding of a particular topic.
