About the Event

Blended and Online Learning has evolved drastically over the past 10 years. During this time, countless Learning Management Systems and Content Management Systems have been commonly used in schools, thus limiting the ability to create and share, have choice, and manage data in a single platform. We are excited to present a new phase in technological development!


SchoolsPLP is built on the most robust LMS on the planet, ties in the latest curriculum from multiple publishers, and includes a proven interface. With these systems in place, we are greatly reducing the need for extended professional development and "new teacher training". Come experience the next generation system for Blended and Online Learning, truly developed for administrators, teachers, counselors, parents, and students in mind!

Who should attend?

  • One-to-One Schools
  • Virtual and Online Learning Programs
  • Credit Recovery Programs
  • Blended Learning administrators and instructors
  • Educators who like to create their own content
  • Administrators who are change agents

Fiscally Responsible Schools: Steve Durand

A recent AZ Central article titled "Dozens of Arizona charter schools are at risk of closing due to financial woes", highlighted the bottom 5 performing schools and the top 5 performing schools based on financial and sustainability factors. Four of the five schools in the "Top Performers" are managed by Steve Durand. Learn how he successfully produces student achievement while being fiscally responsible.
