PLAYMAKERS: LEADING A CULTURE OF ASSESSMENT
1:30 – 3:00 p.m. Concurrent Session
The demands of building and district leaders are extraordinarily high. As we attempt to maintain balance of the varied, demanding roles of our positions, how can we remain diligent to our duty of ensuring high levels of learning for every child? We can best leverage our efforts when we create a balanced system of assessment and embed time for our teachers to collaborate around this critical work. However, building a culture of learning among the adults comes first…and is no small task. Come to this session to gain tips and perspectives on how to set up your teachers (and yourself) for student success!
LEADERSHIP / PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Learning Objective 1: Form a school learning team through acknowledging the required competencies for system change.
