Adaptive Schools Training 

Coming 2023-2024

Strong Instructional Leadership is critical to systems change and continuous improvement. Leading a system through change and adaptive challenges requires intentionality and professional learning. Join us as we bring Adaptive Schools Training to Kansas over the course of the next three school years. 

By engaging in this 4-day training, District Leadership Teams will have the capacity to...

  • Be flexible and adaptive with their structure while also
    being clear about their identity;
  • Build collaborative, professional cultures and develop
    highly productive teams;
  • Foster innovation while maintaining and supporting
    foundational practices that have proven to be impactful; and
  • Address the adaptive challenges currently facing systems across Kansas
    (staff shortages, high turnover, professional development needs, etc)

...in order to improve student outcomes.

Use our Flyer or Brochure to learn more about the training and trainer and to register for the four
day training at one of our five regional Education Service Centers.
