More than 500 educators attend SCORE summit

NASHVILLE,Tenn. (AP) -- More than 500 educators from across Tennessee and abroad have converged on the Music City.

They are participating in a leadership conference hosted by the State Collaborative on Reforming Education, or SCORE.

The summit, which began Wednesday and ends Thursday, has brought together school and district leaders and education leaders to discuss best practices and strategies and collaborate on ideas. Some participants are from other parts of the country.

This summit focuses on four aspects of effective leadership: cultivating strong district and school leaders, ensuring excellent teaching, embracing high standards, and using data and technology to improve learning.

Former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is the founder and chairman of SCORE.

He says one of the main purposes of the conference is to energize educators' leadership potential using new tools that can be applied in schools across the state.
