Leading the Launch for Successful School and District Initiatives
Anyone who has worked in the field of education for some time has seen new initiatives come and go. As leadership, policies, or conditions shift, educators often brace themselves for some fresh “flavor of the month” while waiting for “this too, to pass”. Though this recurring refrain may feel inevitable, what does not have to be inevitable is the process by which initiatives are introduced and infused into an organization for enduring success. The good news is, it can be done. The imperative is, it must be done to build better schools for students, families, and staff–today and tomorrow.This interactive presentation includes strategies, tools, action plans, and checklists to help educational leaders launch, guide, prioritize, and sustain implementations in their own organizations. Geared toward educational leaders, participants will learn how their implementation processes affect the greater whole and how to consciously and deliberately select the best programs, products, and professional learning opportunities to positively impact teachers’ instructional practices and improve student learning.
