Brief Program Description

We know that leadership is complex and highly contextual. As such, it is vital that leaders not only understand “what” has worked in other schools, but also the research that answers “why” these strategies work. In this interactive workshop, Dr. LaFrance and Dr. Edwards will bring together research and practical strategies for successfully turning around schools and improving behavioral and academic outcomes.
