Current and Recent Offerings

What We Offer

This year, the focus for Communities of Practice will be Equity and Distance Learning.

Communities of Practice

Leading for Equity: Reopening Schools

Site leaders this school year are balancing the immediate needs of students and staff along with increasing calls for reimagining and reinventing schools and programs for more equity when we fully reopen post-pandemic. In acknowledging the need for both immediate responses and long-term planning, this Community of Practice is designed for site leaders to interrogate, investigate, and experiment around key issues that they currently face.

Application deadline: January 21st, 2020
