Leadership and the Commitment to Student Learning from District to School to Classroom

Session Sponsored by NIET | Nation Institute for Excellence in Teaching
Session 1
How do we Build and Support a District or School Culture where Student Achievement and Student Ownership are the Celebrated Outcomes?
In this session we will examine the connections between teaching and learning and student ownership of learning. Join the conversation to discuss professional development strategies that strengthen alignment and collective efficacy from the district, administrator, coach or the teacher leader level to lead and inspire your community of educators.

Key reflective question: How do I lead, inspire, coach or support others from my role, so all students are achieving and owning their learning?

Session 2
Are we student learning driven (or- Is our district and school culture grounded in student learning): Aligning the professional learning from the district level to the PLCs?
In this half-day training, participants from the district, administrator, coach or teacher leader levels will examine how professional learning can be aligned to student learning needs and student ownership. This session will support participants with specific strategies and tangible actions to accelerate their impact on student learning. Participants will leave with strategies to improve the depth of professional learning support, whether it’s offered by the district, the principal or a coach leading PLC. and connect the topics to current student learning needs. 
Key reflective question: Does the work I do at my level or from my role have an impact on student learning? 


“The NIET structure and coaching are directly connected to our success. We are better, and we are now internalizing all those coaching moments and using them with each other.”
– Tammy Woolbright, Supervisor of Instruction (pre-K-8) Jackson County Schools, TN

“I wish I knew about NIET in my first year as principal. Our work with NIET has resulted in an instructional culture that is more focused, reflective and purpose-driven. Teachers are delivering instruction with more clarity, depth, and enjoyment!”
- Hayward Jean, Elementary Principal, Orangeburg, S.C.

“NIET’s framework is a game-changer for our district. It confirms that success is achieved when educators are trained to adapt their teaching methods to reach children regardless of nationality, socioeconomic background, learning disabilities, and personal challenges. NIET has empowered our educators to give their very best and be a catalyst for students to do their best.”
– Patrick W. Mapes, Superintendent, Perry Township Schools, IN
