In partnership with the school-district, professional development workshops can be developed and delivered to meet the district’s professional development needs and preferred delivery structure.
- Collaborative Leadership workshops enhance the professional development of teachers and principals by encouraging rigorous professional dialogue that focuses on student outcomes. Topics may include: concepts of professional learning communities, shared leadership, teacher empowerment, improving leadership capacity, and effective grade-level teaming for student achievement.
