Common Ground 2019
Common Ground 2019, our professional development event in Ocean City, Maryland, provides a forum for sharing excellence in education through the vision and expertise of educators from all areas of the global education community. From the classroom to the board room, from the local school to the state or local office, as educators, our primary focus is on the success of all students in our schools. We invite you to share innovative and proven practices that support the Maryland College and Career Readiness Standards and effective strategies that foster Leading and Learning in the Digital Age.

We invite you to submit a proposal to present a concurrent session,
