June 28, 10:15 – 11:30am, Room: Union C
Improved student achievement doesn’t come from a single new program, policy, or procedure. Real, lasting improvements come from an integrated approach that starts with creating a vision and mission, building a collaborative and inclusive process, and taking a stark look at reality through the use of data. Only then can educators plan and implement significant and sustainable improvements in student achievement. In this presentation, Dr. Lezotte shows you the step-by-step framework that effective schools use to accomplish the learning-for-all mission.
Main Presenter: Larry Lezotte, National Education Consultant, Effective Schools Products
