Using Data and Coaching for Sustained Improvement 

9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Dixie Grunenfelder, OSPI
Sharon Bower, WSLA

Who is seeing positive student outcomes? What are they doing? How are they measuring their success? During this session you will learn about a collaborative process in which data is used to implement school-wide systems that support teaching and student learning. Effective coaching tools and processes will be demonstrated to help guide and sustain your work as a leader. We will have the opportunity to hear from schools and districts about their efforts to help guide your journey of continuous improvement, and will conclude with describing a planning process that moves ideas to action and results in increased student success. 

Fee: $225


Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Leading the Conversations

9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Dr. Caprice Hollins 

Race, racism, race relations have always been at the center of cross cultural tensions in our country. Diverse groups hold different perspectives and ideas about how to best address it; and fears and concerns about what will happen if they do. Leaders often find themselves in the center of this conflict with little or no training on how to effectively engage when it does arise, particularly in the workplace where the stakes are high. In this workshop, participants will increase their ability to explore controversial situations from multiple perspectives and learn strategies for leading courageous conversations.  

Fee: $225


Elevating Professional Practice through Focused Conversations 

9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Becky Lee and Anzara Miller 

To quote former U.S. Secretary of Education John King, "If teacher evaluation feels like a 'gotcha' system, it won't work." Teachers deserve support, encouragement, honest feedback, and coaching. Why not make the focus of evaluation on the conversation? In the pre-conference day, we will work together to improve supervisor skill level in identifying strength areas, promoting teacher reflection, and coaching teachers to improve instructional practice. Isn't that why we all go into school leadership to being with?
