Lapeer Community Schools Superintendent Matt Wandrie will tell “The Lapeer Story” at the 2014 Innovative Schools Conference on December 9 in Lansing. The organizers of the conference sought out “recognized innovators” who focus on innovation as a district-wide model.
They found one in Lapeer.
Wandrie said the opportunity will put Lapeer in the spotlight as one of the state’s most-innovative school districts.
“As revenues declined, we made a pact with our organization and our community to hold our students harmless,” Wandrie said. “That’s the Lapeer Story. We doubled down on choice and innovation and our students have benefitted.”
Wandrie will speak alongside educational professionals from across the state. Speakers will highlight a broad range of topics including digital learning, flipped classrooms, early college, project-based learning, personal learning and more.
