TOPIC: MESSAGE TRAINING: HOT TOPIC LEGISLATIVE ISSUES
This session will focus on talking points and effective strategies for communicating the current hot topic issues impacting public schools. We’ll equip attendees with facts and information you can discuss with your legislators.
TOPIC: ACCOUNTABILITY & CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT
School boards play a critical role in setting the climate and culture in their schools regarding student achievement. As a result, the Idaho legislature passed Idaho Code §33-1809 which requires school board members to receive training focused on: (1) resources available for literacy intervention and improvements; (2) school, district, and state level data available to track student literacy proficiency and student growth toward literacy proficiency; and (3) setting measurable goals to improve student proficiency. This workshop will fulfil these requirements and include strategies to align district, school and teacher & pupil service staff goals, so that everyone is working together.
