CTO Summer Clinic 2020
CTO Summer Clinic 2020 is going virtual!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it will be impossible to hold the 2020 TX CTO Clinic in person at the Sheraton, in Georgetown, this June. The uncertainty around what will happen with schools in the coming months has also made it unclear whether we will be able to hold the conference face-to-face in the fall. As such, we have decided to take the 2020 TX CTO Clinic virtual on June 24-25, 2020!
Even though we can't meet in person, we will still be able to see each other face-to-face over Zoom, so please plan to join us online to interact with presenters, sponsors, and your colleagues!
If you have already registered, we will keep your registration active and send you links on how to access the presentations and sessions. If you have not registered, there is still time! We will keep all fees at the Early Bird pricing for the remainder of the registration period and registration will be open until June 19, 2020.
We will continue to bring you quality content through our keynote, Marc Prensky, our presenters, and our partnering organizations. We will have Leadership, Technical, Instruction, and Team Building/Staffing strands.
Registration is now closed!

We have added a FREE Pre-Conference Cybersecurity Planning Workshop for June 22-23, at 9:00 am-12:00, each day. This workshop will help you and your team members understand the new laws around cybersecurity and get you started on your cybersecurity plan. This will be a hands-on, working session to provide you time to begin developing your plan and stay in compliance with the new legislation (SB 820 and HB 3834). We encourage you to bring a team so you can work on these items together. Registration is required, so register now!
The 2020 Virtual CTO Clinic includes Leadership, Technical, Instruction, and Team Building/Staffing strands, with sessions on Disaster Recovery, Digital Citizenship, and Cybersecurity Law.
