Join a frank and timely conversation on the importance of managing the ever-increasing expectations in our schools. Educators from Greens Farms Academy will share the systems and structures that have been put in place to create stronger alignment in their community, leading to improved faculty culture. Leave this session feeling empowered to bring back a sense of joy and connection to your work.
HOW TO JOIN: Registration for the LCS ensures that you have access to as many or as few of the sessions of interest to you. There is no obligation to attend all the sessions. *If you are interested in joining the LCS, we encourage you to share your interest with your supervisor (department chair, grade level leader, division head, PD coordinator, Dean of Faculty, etc.) as there is a group discount pass.
Notes for the all-school pass:
- Schools that choose the all-school, all-access pass should designate one faculty member or administrator to serve as the contact point at the school who will receive and disseminate all registration and connection information to your school community for each session.
- Prior to each session, the contact person will be sent a reminder which will include a link for people to register and receive Zoom connection information for that particular session. This will ensure that CAIS has adequate Zoom access for everyone who wishes to attend and will enable schools to track how many and which employees are attending each session.
