Why should my school attend the Fall Symposium?

Posted by Becky Carlton on Nov 14, 2017 10:47:06 AM


Did you know that the Innovators in Education Fall Symposium and PLCs are eligible for funding through Title IIA? Join charter leadership, teachers, and management company representatives from across the state to reinvigorate the professionalism in education through networking with peers from across the state, gaining inspiration at the general session, and engaging in three innovative breakout sessions on Wednesday.

 The 3-hour professional learning community on Thursday will take the knowledge and information learned from Wednesday and provide an opportunity to debrief and reflect with intentional time to process and develop a plan that will best impact your school. 

Ask these questions about your school:

  1. Is your teacher retention below 80%?
  2. Is your average employment for a teacher less than 5 years?
  3. Is your student time on task impacted by student behavior?
  4. Are your initiatives matching the research data outcomes?
  5. Are more than 25% of your students behind grade level?

If you answered yes to any of the above, the Fall Symposium is a great professional development opportunity for your school! 

Attendees will leave this professional development event with a drive and passion for education and the tools for impacting the most critical factors to building a culture of effective educators. Each participant will have knowledge to examine their individual impact at their school as well as a macro lens to understand where their school is making impact for the state of Michigan. Attendees will leave this event with the tools to:

  • Reinvigorate the professionalism and pride in education and to be part of the movement as an educator to positively impact recruitment and retention of educators into the future.
  • Implement an educator evaluation system focused on individualized coaching and development of each teacher and the building of a career-ladder for teacher leadership positions.
  • Create a trauma-sensitive classroom and school allowing teachers and staff the ability to address the social and emotional issues that are present in today‚Äôs schools and impeding progress for student achievement.
  • Understand the current state of K-12 education in the state of Michigan and the accountability on each individual school to deliver on their promise of supporting every student to achieve their greatest potential.
  • Empower each and every teacher and school leader to be involved in the success of the school as measured by achievement, retention and parent satisfaction. 

All sessions and content are designed through feedback and data from charter schools across Michigan to ensure the sessions and program are relevant and aligned with identified priorities for increasing student achievement. Sessions are developed through extensive research to provide ample best practice examples and attendees are provided with meaningful data points to track implementation. Register today to reserve your seat at the Fall Symposium!
