The purpose of this Community of Practice is to have dedicated space for directors to learn from and connect with each other around the issues most pressing to THEM. The topics of these free, bi-weekly, sessions (facilitated by Jenny Vial and Deanna LaMotte) will be largely participant-directed. Some will be wide-open conversations where directors can pose questions and share resources. Some may include a “guest speaker” or a presentation to address specific questions that arose in previous sessions. Topics may include the latest COVID-19 guidance, HR issues, financial/business leadership, engaging with families, supporting and retaining teachers, etc.
You may “drop in” to sessions as you are able to attend. Registering is NOT a commitment to attend all sessions. Registration will add you to a list to receive brief notifications of upcoming session topics, and Zoom links and related materials. Attendance will be taken and credit hours awarded in February for any sessions attended.
Please note: This event takes place Online through Zoom. Internet access is required to participate. Sign up here on our website to get the Zoom login information. A link will be sent to you prior to the first session so you can access Zoom to participate.We hope to see you there!
