Virtual District Leadership Team Institute
Leveraging Blueprint Systems to Move Upstream
June 15, 2021

You demonstrated flexibility, adaptability, and creativity as you worked to meet the needs of your community during the 2020-2021 school year.  We invite you to join us for a one-day virtual District Leadership Team Institute where you will have the opportunity to reflect on which district systems and building routines worked well and what new practices might be carried forward.  Your district leadership team will then apply that information to improve systems using upstream thinking.  As a culmination of our year-long work based on the book Upstream:  The Quest to Solve Problems Before They Happen, we are thrilled to have the author Dan Heath join us for a closing endnote address.  Dan will deliver a critical message for school leaders seeking to shift their energies upstream.

Virtual Blueprint Institute VII
Engaging and Refining Our Systems to Support Continuous Improvement
August 4-5, 2021

This Institute will be two days of learning and discussion around how we refine the systems in our districts, schools, and classrooms.  This year we welcome two keynote speakers to our virtual institute.  On August 4, Manny Scott will share real, life-changing lessons and support participants in learning to transform our schools into safe, positive environments where adults are equipped to reach all students. On August 5, Jenni Donohoo will provide the foundation for understanding the source of collective efficacy for teachers and school leaders as well as the significant impact collective efficacy has on student achievement. Daily networking opportunities will allow for discussion around relevant topics and district highlights. Our 90-minute learning sessions will be application-focused providing examples, tools, and/or protocols that will support all efforts toward continuous improvement.
