SCARSDALE, N.Y. – The Scarsdale School District has rescheduled its meeting with Dr. Tony Wagner, the first Innovative Education Fellow at the Technology and Entrepreneurship Center at Harvard University, after Hurricane Sandy forced the original discussion to be postponed.

Wagner, the author of “Creating Innovators” and “The Global Achievement Gap,” will host a presentation from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Dec. 5 in the Scarsdale High School auditorium, and will take questions from the audience.

Wagner is the founder and co-director of the Change Leadership Group at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and his latest book provides a roadmap for parents who want to help their children prepare for the workplace of the future, according to the district.

“Our commitment to prepare graduates for an increasingly interdependent world has led us to reach out to Scarsdale and beyond for perspective and advice,” said Public Information Officer Vicki Presser. “As a result of that outreach, the Center for Innovation is hosting ‘An Evening with Tony Wagner.’”

The presentation is free and open to all members of the community, but pre-registration is required. Copies of Wagner's book “Creating Innovators” will be available for purchase at the event.
