  • Each year, Future Ready Schools - New Jersey celebrates national Digital Learning Day by officially opening the school certification cycle at the FRS-NJ Certification Summit at NJIT. This year, we will have a satellite location hosted by the SRI&ETTC at Stockton University and an option to stream the event live.

    Who Should Attend? 
    Registration is on an individual basis, but it is highly recommended that you attend as a district-level Future Ready Team consisting of three team members at a minimum. Positions that should be represented on these teams reflect the official District Level Future Ready Team and include: 

    • A board of education member 
    • The superintendent
    • A technology director or IT personnel 
    • School and district leaders, as well as educators, who are dedicated to the success of the district's Future Ready efforts 
    • The lead chair from each school's Future Ready team (once they are established) 
    • A librarian/media specialist 
    • The business administrator 

    Ways to Attend 

    For each certification summit, Future Ready Schools - New Jersey works to ensure that the event is as accessible as possible to educators and leaders statewide. In order to achieve this objective, we are providing three ways for you and your team to attend and benefit from the event.
