Sycamore Summit 2020

July 14—16, 2020

A new virtual conference for Sycamore School customers

Reaching the top of a summit requires hard work, training, and the commitment to dive deep into yourself — and persevering until you achieve your goals.

The idea of ‘diving deep’ is the theme of Sycamore Education’s first virtual Sycamore Summit, scheduled for July 14-16, 2020. This event replaces our traditional summer webinars and will take you on a deeper dive into the important and impactful features of Sycamore School that can make a difference for your school.

Our School Ambassadors (that’s you!) will be able to learn, engage, and discuss a wide variety of topics in multiple sessions hosted by our knowledgeable conference team. Session leaders will include members of our Support Team, New School Specialists, Product Specialists, and Sales Team.
