Session Descriptions

Get Better Faster: Observation & Feedback
Exceptional school leaders succeed because of how they use their time, what they do, and how and when they do it. Observation and Feedback will emphasize this principle and demonstrate the most effective ways to coach every teacher to improve student learning on a frequent basis. You will learn the four keys to effective observation and feedback, including locking in frequent and regular observations, identifying the one or two most important areas for growth, giving direct face-to-face feedback that practices specific action steps for improvement, and creating systems to ensure feedback translates to practice. In addition, you will have opportunities to practice skills you learn by participating in two simulations and ongoing video reviews for self-reflection.

Get Better Faster: Weekly Data Meetings
Immediate analysis leads to deeper analysis. Leaders can help their teachers guide students to get better faster through weekly data analysis. In this module, you will learn how to maximize the use of data in your school through implementation of weekly data meetings.

Leading School Culture
You can tell a lot about student culture just by how a school feels, and the best schools are intentional about creating this culture. Strong school and student culture ensures students are building the habits of mind and heart that enable instruction and love of learning to happen. In this session, you will learn how to create a vision for student culture and then actualize it with minute by minute plans and teacher practice. Finally, you'll learn how to implement systems that enable you to monitor and maintain your student culture.
