Registration Open for Spring 2007 School System Leadership Team Conference

April 09, 2007

West Virginia School System Leadership Teams will gather at the Charleston Civic Center on April 16-18, 2007, to begin the next steps in West Virginia’s improvement efforts that focus on 21st Century Learning. The conference theme is “Choosing Your Pathway to Bring 21st Century Skills to Every West Virginia Student.” Leadership team members will have the opportunity to learn from national experts, reflect on current practices and learn about resources available to help them serve as catalysts for change to assure that every student has the skills necessary to be successful in work and life in the 21st century.  

The featured speaker on the first day of the conference, Richard Stiggins, a leading national expert on 21st assessments for learning, will provide an overview of the importance of a balanced assessment system in implementing 21st century learning. Day two of the conference will feature Susan Leddick, a national leader in strategic planning, who will tell us how to “Lead With Your Plan by Moving from Planning to Action.” Day three will allow School System Leadership Teams to select from a variety of breakout sessions that include an overview of resources and exemplars to support 21st century learning. As in previous conferences, team meetings will be arranged for team reflection, assessment and planning.  

In addition to the established county leadership team, each county may choose to bring principals and teacher leaders, who will share this information and support the school system’s improvement efforts. Please make sure all team members register online to confirm their attendance. Staff members from RESAs, West Virginia Department of Education and other education agencies also should complete the online registration.
