K-12 leaders face daily challenges and opportunities from all education stakeholders:
- Parents demand the highest level of academics for their child.
- Staff expect clear objectives.
- The community at large, expects fiscal responsibility.
Because of these growing demands, it is unrealistic for administrators, specifically superintendents, to be able to immediately solve every problem that lands on their desk.
For the third year in a row, Blackboard is excited to have K-12
students join us at BbWorld for a student panel. After all, the
investments we make in education benefit students and contribute to their
success in academics and in life. Come hear what they have to say about their
school-life experiences and how they prefer to be engaged in learning. You'll
gain insight into the role technology plays in their daily lives.

Blackboard. 27 district administrators gathered in Baltimore’s Inner harbor on May 11th to engage with colleagues and the Blackboard K-12 team. Many conversations
took place over this two day period, with topics ranging from online
communications, creating district
efficiencies and doing
more with less. Attendees enjoyed some peanuts and crackerjacks at the old
ballgame and even though the Oriole's lost that night, our guests enjoyed networking and conversing in the park.

weather patterns and incredible snow accumulations
forcing hundreds of school districts to close. Teachers and students were
forced to stay home, and this, without a doubt, created challenging situations
and district leaders. Many districts were closed for more than a week,
disrupting lesson plans and testing schedules, particularly if the school
district did not have access to an online
learning system or a plan for education
