Third Annual Education Collaborative Summit

July 19-20, 2018 

The 2018 Education Collaborative Regional Summit is the 3rd annual summit and will be hosted by the Carrollton-Carroll County Education Collaborative (CCEC). Education and community leaders from all over the region will join together to examine the progress of their collaborative efforts and strategize potential ideas for future growth.

This year’s summit marks the growth of CCEC from a Carroll County focused effort to a regional collaboration to include surrounding neighbor counties.

Keynote speakers include Dr. Tim Elmore, author, and Dr. Tristan Denley, USG Chief Academic Officer.

The Summit will convene on July 19, 2018 at 1:15 PM at Carrollton High School at 201 Trojan Drive, Carrollton, GA 30117. Further details for the event can be found in the registration process.
