Boards Matter: You Make the Difference in Student Achievement
Limited Capacity seats available

Student Achievement needs to be every board's top priority. All board members want their students to succeed but often don't understand their role in creating the vision and conditions for student success. Board members need the knowledge and confidence to discuss student achievement at the board table and collaborately build a system that focuses on improved student learning.

The conversation begins with the belief that all children can learn and board members make the difference in creating districts where all students reach their highest potential!

A Murder Mystery: Collaring the Culprits Who Can Kill Your Professional Learning Community
Limited Capacity seats available

Who’s killing your professional learning community? In this simulation, you will be involved in a real-life murder mystery as you listen to suspects, gather clues, and try to identify culprits who have “done in” efforts to establish systemic staff development and professional learning communities. You will examine “pitfalls” including attitudes and practices that kill collaborative culture, bring continuous improvement to a halt, and stand in the way of student learning. Key strategies to enhance student learning through collaborative teams will be shared.

Superintendent Search: The Process
Limited Capacity seats available

This hands-on action lab will cover all aspects of the superintendent search process.  We will explain areas of responsibility of the CSA and have small groups reach consensus on their expectations.  The next step is the Preparation Stage where we will discuss the decisions that have to be made.  In small groups the attendees will participate in a hands on activity on setting up the search criteria. The next step is the Processing Stage, which involves setting up a calendar, the application, and the interviews.  In small groups the participants will review the legality of interview questions.  The last phase in the process is the Final Selection Stage.  In this stage we will discuss choosing the finalists, district visits, negotiating the contract, and picking the new superintendent.
