Training, Collaborating, and Sharing

In an effort to support educators in implementing various initiatives, the department hosts and organizes many training events and conferences throughout the year for Tennessee educators.


Tennessee Educational Leadership Conference (LEAD)

The annual Tennessee Educational Leadership Conference gives school and district leaders the opportunity to share and discuss effective practices happening every day in their districts and schools. With valuable first-person examples, educators from across the state share their best ideas for preparing Tennessee’s students for college and careers.

Tennessee Educational Technology Conference (TETC)

Designed specifically for school and district educational technology leaders and instructors, TETC offers opportunities for growth and development through training sessions, labs, interest sessions, and peer networking.

Superintendent Study Council (SSC)

Tennessee directors of schools gather each year for a conference and professional development workshop in Gatlinburg.

Partners in Education (formerly the Special Education Conference)

We believe that students are general education students first, and additional support is part of the continuum of services offered to meet the needs of all students. The PIE conference feature sessions and workshops on providing support to all students.
