The Strategic Leadership for College and Career Readiness Community of Practice is designed to engage teams of three or more members of district- and school-based leadership in creating a strong infrastructure to lead change to support college and career readiness for all students. Participants will explore a defined leadership theory of action that addresses educator beliefs and behaviors, identifies campus-wide conditions, and supports AVID Schoolwide implementation and sustainability to ensure college and career readiness for all. Participants will return to their schools equipped with a systemic approach to identify specific strategies to accomplish, anticipate, and troubleshoot potential obstacles and barriers and implement lasting change to provide equitable educational opportunities for all students. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced in this Community of Practice can be leveraged in face-to-face, blended, or virtual learning environments.
This Community of Practice requires all participants to have their own device or laptop that can connect to the internet. Participants must bring an acceptable device, power cord, and earbuds/headphones with them to the session. If a district-issued device is being used, be sure to log in to the device on the district network before attending. Device software and preferred web browsers (Chrome or Firefox) need to be up to date.
Three-day summer virtual professional learning event featuring real-time interaction with facilitators and peers nationwide in both a Community of Practice and a session illustrating ways to extend learning throughout the school year, engage in productive planning, and ignite inspiration campuswide. Plus, time is provided before or after virtual learning for individuals to further reflect or for sites and districts to host their own activities.
Four 3-hour professional learning modules through a virtual platform using videoconferencing provide a high-paced, interactive, dynamic learning experience while modeling engaging and rigorous instruction. There will also be opportunities to engage in One-to-One Collaborative Coaching.
