Conference Mission and Vision

  • The mission of Leon County Schools (LCS) is to prepare students to become responsible, respectful, independent learners equipped with the critical thinking skills necessary to compete in our global society.

    Within the overall LCS mission, the LCS Academic Services division seeks to provide teachers with the resources, curricular tools, and professional knowledge to guide students on their journey to success.

    The LCS Simply the B.E.S.T. Conference, aims to help LCS educators increase their knowledge of the educational shifts needed to tackle learning loss due to Covid-19 during a time of changing practices in Florida education with the implementation of the new B.E.S.T. standards and the Florida Assessment of Student Thinking (F.A.S.T.). After two difficult years of sudden and unexpected change in the field of education, teachers and school staff are more experienced than ever at handling systemic change. However, our educators want time to purposefully pause and to reflect on the knowledge gained as well as the new expectations moving forward while having the opportunity to celebrate what we all love about our field--helping students and changing lives through education.

    The Simply the B.E.S.T. conference aims to bring this opportunity to over 1,000 LCS educators to celebrate the joy and the art of teaching.
