Who Should Enroll?
This virtual online workshop is designed for school and district administrators across public and private school sectors.


Participants in this PLC will receive guidance and support focused on the following themes:

  • Recovery: In Session 1, leaders will examine the importance of  tending to themselves and their fellow educators in mental health and wellness.  
  • Restoration: In Session 2 , leaders will explore ways to efficiently and authentically assess what has been broken and lost over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, and mitigate the damage done. 
  • Re-vision: In Sessions 3 and 4, leaders will reimagine practices moving forward, exploring innovations that can stick, and distinguishing reacting to a pandemic from fighting inequities that are endemic.
  • Re-group: In Session 5, after a four-week break, leaders will come back together to finalize plans for applying their learning in the coming academic year.
