The Power of ICU Summer Professional Development Conference will be held July 13-14, 2023, in Murfreesboro, Tennessee (30 min. outside of Nashville), for district, school, and classroom level educators looking to learn more about or strengthen and deepen the implementation of ICU.

  • Discover new ways to utilize and maximize the use of the ICU Database
  • Gather example layers of support menus and multiple ways to do blitzes from various ICU schools
