Agenda

T4T II members have the opportunity to attend a two-day site visit to Katy ISD (TX) — one of the premier districts leading a digital conversion through mobile learning with a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) effort. The draft agenda and FAQs are now available.

District leaders will engage in cross-district collaboration and knowledge-sharing and hear Superintendent Casey Wardynski from Huntsville City School District (AL) and other national thought leaders’ recommendations for transforming the culture of teaching and learning.

Questions about the program? Contact Ann Ware.

 
Speakers: 

Alton Frailey serves as superintendent for the Katy Independent School District since 2007. He is responsible for the daily operations of Katy ISD’s campuses, students, employees and overall district success. Since joining the district, Katy ISD has grown from a TEA Academically Acceptable district in 2006-2007, to reaching Recognized status the very next year, and maintaining it thereafter. This while adding seven new schools and nearly 10,000 new students. Dr. Frailey will share Katy's BYOD story to the Teaming for Transformation community.



Colonel Casey Wardynski was appointed as Superintendent for Huntsville City Schools in June 2011. Previous to this, he served as the chief financial officer for Aurora, Colorado Public Schools where he was responsible for guiding all financial, food server and risk management activities for the District with 51 schools and revenues of over $320 million serving over 35,000 students. Learn how Dr. Wardynski implemented his district's 1:1 program, the only one in the country for pre-school through high school.
