Conference Theme


“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” - Aristotle

How can we make our AESD Network greater than the sum of its parts? What if we looked more closely at the “parts” of our Network? What if we examined the networks within our Network? What would happen if those networks were included…involved…invited? What if we re-imagined the AESD Conference as a true networking opportunity that brings our teams together?  Imagine the Power of the Network. 

NETWORK defined:

  1. (noun) a group or system of interconnected people or things:
    Stronger together, Washington State's nine ESDs (the AESD Network) are united in a shared goal - to help all students succeed.

  2. (verb) to meet other people who do the same type of work, in order to share information, and help each other:
    The 2018 AESD Conference will be a one-of-a-kind opportunity for participants from multiple roles and programs to network with one another.

We encourage the superintendents, board members, and directors across our 9 ESDs to extend this invitation and bring your network to the 2018 conference as we explore THE POWER OF THE NETWORK.
