Sessions offered July 26 and 27 will be dedicated to focused strategic planning activities intended for administrators and school/district leaders. The following are subtopics with essential questions that each session administrators attend will work towards answering:

  • Materials and Curriculum: In the district and at each school (classroom) how are content, materials, and curriculum used with equitable, best practices to impact each students’ learning?
  • Leadership: How do we build and nurture our district/schools by actively participating in vision and goal setting activities and coordinating across district/schools/classroom for coherent objectives and outcomes?
  • Educator Capacity and Development: How can we intentionally prepare, support, and grow our administrators, educators and staff; so they are equipped to support and grow students?
  • Partner and Community: With a commitment to equity and diversity, how do we actively involve our stakeholders, educational partners, communities, and families?

Sessions offered July 28 and 29 will be focused on learning for all educator roles, comprising these subtopics:

  • Learning Environments: How do we prepare, develop, connect, support, and empower each learner through the balance of learning environments across the system?
  • Instructional Practices: What educator moves can we embed in our practice to support our students, communities, and each other in order to disrupt and dismantle inequitable practices and systems so that ALL students achieve high levels?
  • Content-Specific Practices: What content-specific practices have leverage and longevity inside and outside of the classroom that best support our students’ growth?
  • Teacher Leadership: How do I advocate for and strengthen equitable practices and structures to transform systems?
