Model Schools Conference
No professional learning initiative is complete without taking part in Model Schools Conference. This intensive four day event brings together like-minded educators throughout the country—teachers and leaders who are focused on raising the bar on instruction, revolutionizing school leadership, engaging students like never before, and looking around the corner at education innovations we cannot even imagine yet. 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.
This event includes:
- 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
- Explicit modeling of instructional practices in literacy, mathematics, and career readiness
Participants will return home energized, inspired and equipped with resources and strategies to affect positive change in their schools and classrooms immediately.
At ICLE’s Leadership Academy, attendees engage in research-based strategies for immediately effecting positive change in their districts and schools. Sessions focused on innovative practices for building leadership capacity are presented by school practitioners who have achieved dramatic improvement. All participants –current and aspiring principals, instructional leaders, lead teachers, and district leaders –will discover new ideas and sharpen the skills that are central to a systemwide focus on instructional effectiveness to drive student achievement.
