Testimonials from District Leaders
I always gain a tremendous amount of insight. It truly takes a village to educate ourselves as well as our students and staff. I appreciate being a part of this group.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are my commitments?
Participants will meet every other week. There will be a total of ten 60-minute sessions, facilitated from October 2022 to March 2023. For each session, participants complete optional pre-work, an end-of-session survey, and try out a leadership practice before the next meeting.
Do I have to attend all sessions? What if I miss one? Can I send a representative in my place?
Each session builds on the previous session, so attendance at all sessions is important. Also, this small learning community is designed for the same participants each time, so we do not advise substitute representatives. Instead, we recommend that each district send two participants, so that if one participant can’t attend, the second can share information from the missed session.
What kinds of resources will I receive?
Participants will leave with research-based leadership resources and ideas.
Is this group serving as an advisory council?
No. The Eureka Math® Advisory Council is a different opportunity. This professional learning network is an opportunity for educators to collaboratively engage in leadership research and apply adaptive leadership practices. Any conversations participants wish to have about Great Minds products will be conducted separately.
