The Strategic Leadership for College and Career Readiness 2: Leadership Community of Practice engages teams of three or more members of district- and school-based leadership. Strategic Leadership 2: Leadership focuses on the AVID College and Career Readiness Framework through the lens of leadership. The course looks intentionally at vision-, mission-, and purpose-driven leadership and its alignment to policy, practices, and behaviors. The course explores the role of a leader and identifies specific beliefs, behaviors, and skills that effective leaders need to successfully implement the school improvement cycle at their site to better serve scholars and teachers. This session will examine how to successfully build leadership capacity to support the AVID College and Career Readiness System. 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.
