Monthly Meetings on Select Mondays
September 2020 – June 2021
3:30-4:30 p.m. ET
Join us for our year-long District Administrators’ Professional Learning Group (PLG). PLGs are cohorts of participants who meet regularly to learn from research, share dilemmas, examine work, and push and challenge each other. Virtual PLGs give participants the opportunity to learn and grow with others who work in different schools and communities while helping to keep us healthy and safe during the Covid-19 pandemic. This PLG will provide new perspectives in a supportive and facilitated online environment across the entire school year. Registration closes September 11, 2020.
This PLG is open to district-level administrators, such as superintendents, assistant superintendents, directors of curriculum & instruction, and directors of special education who have a prek-12 perspective, with a focus on support for teaching & learning and systems change. We will approach all discussions from the frame of district administrators as instructional leaders in service of educational equity.
The goal of the district administrators’ PLG is to support professional development in service of creating more equitable schools for all students. Indeed, COVID will necessitate a focus on a changed, more versatile repertoire of teaching & learning for individual educators and the system, as well as the ability to secure and manage adequate resources, different approaches, and necessary safeguards.
Through our work, participants will:
- Identify connections, exchange ideas, and foster professional relationships in order to support school change.
- Apply new learning and perspectives to dilemmas and work related to creating equitable outcomes for all learners.
- Share resources, knowledge, and strategies for implementing school change.
- Use the shifting context of the 2020-21 school year as a catalyst for growth and improvement, both as professionals and for our schools.
This PLG is open to district administrators whose work directly impacts the process of teaching and learning of students. This includes superintendents, assistant superintendents, directors of curriculum, etc.
