The University of Texas at Tyler Ingenuity Center, in partnership with Tyler area educators, will hold an education summit 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30 at the UT Tyler Ornelas Activity Center.

Educators, state officials and chamber of commerce presidents will discuss ways to increase knowledge and awareness of the New Vision educational philosophy and develop additional methods for collaborations.

New Vision, a statewide grassroots effort, aims to transform the Texas public education system through technology to enhance curriculum and instruction. The philosophy also places less emphasis on standardized testing and more importance on local control and a broader accountability system.

The idea for regional action was first initiated from a group organized by the Texas Association of School Administrators.

For more information, contact Eli Crow, UT Tyler Innovation Academy superintendent, 903.705.4330 or ecrow@uttyler.edu.
