Greetings today from the SWFT!  We are excited to share with you today a new video piece and to begin one of our new webinar series resources this week.  We are dedicated to providing you real-time support in a myriad of ways so that you can access technical assistance for what you need when you need it.  We have begun many new ways of support over the last month, if you’re a bit overwhelmed and not sure where to turn, ask your facilitator to point you to the right direction.  The goal is simply to provide you with an array of tools to help you take your work to scale. The expertise cannot lie in the District Network alone. Powerful collaborative depends on expertise at every level of the organization.  I hope these tools will be helpful in getting systemic reconfiguration and changes in our professional practice to scale.

In our continuing efforts to assist you in living and breathing systemic reconfiguration, we’re excited to share additional options for you to get REAL TIME support when you want to interact live with members of the SWFT.
