Summary

In this session, participants will examine how to creatively apply three critical shifts in their school communities that can lead to desired outcomes. These critical shifts begin with the concept of collective efficacy which enhances the efforts and expectations of educators as they engage in the work of addressing culture, climate, achievement challenges. The shifts include the following: A BOLD people shift from a few building leaders to building capacity for more people to lead innovation. A BOLD practice shift from responding to discipline with punitive consequences to responding with restorative practices. A BOLD protocol shift from analyzing just school wide data to analyzing individual student data that results in knowing students by name and by need.
