The three elements are: Coherent Curriculum Authentic Literacy Soundly Structured Lessons Despite their unrivaled power for improving performance in any school, these elements continue to be misunderstood—and grossly under-implemented.

    Target Audience: Superintendents, Assistant Superintendents, Curriculum Directors, Special Education Directors, Building Administrators, Teacher Leaders, and Leadership Teams. Overcoming resistance to change is typically the most difficult challenge in school improvement. This session will help leaders understand how to support educators as they make this seismic shift in their practice. We will examine the power of a balanced and methodical approach to change management which establishes a balance between support and accountability. We will concentrate on four critical leadership skills: Communication (WHY?), Trust Building (Who?), Capacity Building (How?) and Accountability (Do). Participants will understand: The leader’s role and responsibility in leading change The legitimate needs that have to be met before change can be expected How to monitor change using a protocol that can greatly increase the likelihood of systemic implementation of the PLC process Presenter: Dr. Anthony Muhammad

    This event is scheduled for 5:00pm to - 8:00pm

    Target Audience: Superintendents, Assistant Superintendents, Curriculum Directors, Special Education Directors, Building Administrators, Teacher Leaders, and Leadership Teams. In this evening dine and learn session, Dr. Muhammad will discuss how we can ensure learning equality in every classroom so that factors such as economic standing and race don’t play a role in determining students’ achievement. We will examine predominant mindsets that contradict school missions to promote equal academic opportunities and explore strategies for adopting a new mindset that frees educators and students from cultural attitudes that reinforce negative academic performance expectations. Participants will: Delve into the factors that impact achievement inequality Consider the importance of mindsets and frameworks related to the achievement gap, including how impartiality is missing from struggling students’ school experiences, especially for poor and minority students Examine the indicators that can help you assess whether your school has fostered the values of responsibility, advocacy, and equality Presenter: Dr. Anthony Muhammad

    Target Audience: Superintendents, Assistant Superintendents, Curriculum Directors, Special Education Directors, and Building Administrators. Whether a school’s challenge is the lack of clarity, the absence of shared knowledge, or the lack of fidelity around implementation of Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), this training will accommodate the needs of all practitioners. Novice district and building level leaders will benefit from the development of common language and shared understanding of the PLC process. More experienced district and building level leaders can refocus on the practical implications of implementing PLCs. Regardless of the needs of the participant, the goal of this series is to enhance the capacity to successfully implement PLCs and thereby ensure higher levels of student learning. Participants will: Develop a deep understanding of the PLC process Build shared knowledge and foster common vocabulary leading to the successful implementation of PLCs Apply the latest research of PLC best practice strategies with a foundation on the 3 Big Ideas of PLCs. Presenter: Dr. Thomas Many
