As educational leaders, we think about change, how it will impact our responsibilities, and the leadership we will provide to advance performance and achievement of students and staff.

With a leadership team from your school or district, plan to join the commissioner, assistant commissioners, NJ Department of Education directors, and leaders of your associations and districts to hear about the impact and possibilities of a collective purpose: a systems approach and process for elevating school improvement.

Audience: The intent of this day is to provide important information to a team of educators in a school/district who would be responsible for implementation. Please consider including a teacher leader on a representative team with a principal, director or supervisor, superintendent or assistant, and a board member.
