About the Event

"Leading Schools by Fostering Equity-based Conversations and Solutions"

Workshop Description:

Through one school’s story of crisis, collaboration and progress, participants will learn and reflect on the multiple roles educational leaders must navigate in order to support all students in today’s world.  During the first session, participants will enjoy a “behind the scenes” look at the thought-processes, communications, resources, background knowledge and challenges that must be addressed when leading a school through challenging times.  The second session leads participants through equity-based decision making processes to implement solutions and affect change on a school-wide and classroom level.  Participants will be encouraged to apply this information and reflect on their own current work locations.

Learning Objectives
