2018 NROC Member Meeting

The Power of You - Member Meeting 2018

Conference Overview

Join us in Monterey, California, March 4 – 7, 2018 for an energizing users’ conference shaped by NROC members like you. Together, we will explore how innovative secondary, postsecondary, and adult educators are adapting NROC Math and English, HippoCampus, and EdReady to improve student success.

The Power of You

In today’s noisy education space — humming with mandates, initiatives, vendors, and so much more — individual voice and expertise is too often drowned out. We recognize that authentic student success can’t be forged without your unique contributions. This year, we are honored to showcase how NROC members are successfully meeting the needs of the modern learner and changing institutions along the way.

With sessions for administrators and teachers across the stages of implementation, we encourage you to bring a team of change-leaders to maximize the ways in which NROC membership can support the students you serve.
