Institutes & Events

Work with us to develop the most promising plan possible for utilizing the few days a year you have for professional learning. We will work with you to customize one or more institutes that meet the specific needs of your teams based on school or district goals. These services are ideal for districts with new leadership or staff, or within a district that is undergoing rapid change. You can also participate in our annual events, including:

Model Schools Conference

Attendees will hear from schools that are ahead of the curve in implementing positive change – they’ll share their triumphs, their learnings, and their mistakes so every attendee walks away with concrete ideas of how to adopt similar changes in their own school or district. The event provides countless networking opportunities to learn from other schools, hands-on sessions that immerse attendees in the kind of instruction that will prepare students for successful futures, and countless moments of inspiration, motivation, and empowerment.

  • 100+ sessions providing concrete approaches to preparing students for successful futures
  • 25+ model schools share their success stories and innovative practices
  • Hands-on sessions immerse participants in effective instruction
