It’s an exciting time for education in Kansas as everyone experiences the KESA/redesign process and the changes that are occurring across our state. At the same time, change creates tensions that must be managed. How do we recover from the AYP Hangover and embrace KESA and redesign? The Right Stuff for moving Kansas forward includes collaborative teaming, new lenses for leadership, and a clear sense of identity. Join us for an interactive day of learning that focuses on all 3 of these components. Engage with colleagues who will push your thinking about change and redesign in your district as well as tools you can use tomorrow to foster deeper conversations within your own system.
Participants will walk away with:
- heightened consciousness regarding the what, why and how of collaboration;
- awareness of “levels of learning;”
- new lenses on how leaders can create and support change;
- increased knowledge regarding two types of suspension required for conversation;
- enhanced tools and strategies to support skillful collaboration.
- expanded repertoire of practical facilitation tools
Leadership is not a role; it is how we function-our actions. Regardless of your title, you are a leader. Teacher leaders are key to our success. Join together with other leaders as we learn and experience more tools to influence the thinking of teams/buildings/systems.
