Memo Text

The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) is excited to announce its annual Summit will be held at the Hot Springs Convention Center on July 10-12, 2023. This year, the conference will be face-to-face only; there will be no pre-recorded or virtual sessions. The Summit still promises to offer something for everyone, including teachers, administrators, technology personnel, and student support staff. 

Pre-registration is now open! Registration costs $50 per person, with a pre-registration deadline of June 16, 2023. There will be on-site registration available, and payments can be made by check or money order payable to the Arkansas Department of Education or by credit card.


Providing professional development credit will remain up to the district's discretion, as no certificates will be provided by the ADE. The Sched system, where participants register for individual sessions, offers the ability to print an individual’s schedule of sessions if needed.

 For additional information on hotel accommodations and registration details, please visit:

 * Please check the ADE Summit website often, as it will be updated with details from now until the conference. The conference app, ADE SUMMIT, will need to be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play for new or returning conference participants.
