Today’s school and district leaders are facing more challenges than ever before. Rising costs, inadequate funding, and political pressures seemingly force leaders to do more and more with less and less each year. Simultaneously, the current speed of technological breakthroughs has led to the coming age of workplace automation, dramatically altering the world of work that our students will enter upon graduation. With the vast disparities of inequity that have existed for centuries, school and district leaders must work tirelessly to break many patterns of the past, particularly for traditionally marginalized groups. Built upon the foundation of leadership and school culture, a redesigned learning experience fundamentally shifts the teaching and learning paradigm to one that is personal and authentic, where each child has a voice, and their unique story is valued. To prepare our students for the world ahead, we must lead the needed transformation through a culture of innovation, while ensuring equity in access and opportunity for all.
Join us for this full-day, hands-on workshop and leave with strategies and tools to support you in leading the work forward.
