Session Dates and Learning Focus

Session 1: Tuesday, June 25

8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Research on effective school leaders reveals a set of key actions and responsibilities that principals and leadership teams can enact that have a strong, direct effect on teacher efficacy and student success. In this session, you'll learn about these actions and responsibilities and gain knowledge and skills to lead better decision-making processes at your school using goal-oriented analysis focused on your students' and teachers' needs.

Session 2: Wednesday, June 26

8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

What are the best, high-leverage things you can do to make a bigger difference for your students and staff? In this session, we'll help you identify what matters most right now for your school's improvement. You'll also learn about the power of best first instruction and a brain-based model for student learning that your teachers can use to make their initial, Tier 1 instruction more engaging and memorable for all students.

Session 3: Thursday, June 27

8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Whenever you implement a new policy, procedure, or process at your school, your staff may need to change their own routines and beliefs--and this change process can be challenging for many people. In this session, you'll deepen your understanding of the phases of change and how to develop action plans for more effective implementation, staff support, and progress monitoring.

Session 4: Friday, June 28

8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In our final session, we'll work together to help you develop plans for creating a positive, continuous-improvement culture at your school using the power of asset-based thinking and community engagement.
