what is the leading learning series?

The leading learning series provides structure, tools, and implementation support to campus leaders throughout the school year. lead4ward is excited to offer two support solutions to campus leaders as they develop their expertise in leading learning.

This year, principals will register their campus for leading learning series without selecting the designation of planning instruction or evidence of learning. In May, principals will receive an email with instructions on how to make the best selection for your campus.

audience: principal and campus leadership team (or lead PLC)

As leaders, maintaining instructional focus is essential to ensuring teacher and student success. The planning instruction webinar series is designed to help the principal and campus leadership team (or lead PLC) plan instruction that is relevant, engaging, and rigorous. Each webinar is guided by a customized action plan, relevant resources, and recorded for flexibility of use.

what you will learn
