Detroit PowerSchool Summit

Detroit’s Very Own PowerSchool Summit.

This year, we were back to 100% in-person learning and the summit took place on Tuesday May 24th and Wednesday May 25th, 2022, with an after-hours social event on Tuesday the 24th. The two day summit included two courses or “tracks,” each broken up into four instructional sessions across the two day event.
