“Creating a Culture Where All Students Thrive” is a continuation of the professional learning built upon over the last two years.  In 2014-2015 we began with “Building Leadership Capacity,” followed by “Transforming School Culture” in 2015-2016.  This year we are proud to bring back Dr. Cruz once again to inspire and inform!

Does your school have a collective mindset that all students really can thrive?  Do you have a plan and, more importantly, the tools in place to act on this as a staff? 
“Creating a Culture Where All Students Thrive” empowers school leadership teams to effectively work toward developing a culture where staff is committed to ensuring that everyone inside the school is valued.  As a leadership team, participants will build
a plan that they can take back to their school and immediately implement.  Following this six-session professional learning, schools will genuinely and visibly work toward changing their culture. 

In this workshop, teacher and administrative teams will learn to:

* Implement Dr. Anthony Muhammad’s research on school culture to both “re-culture and re-structure” a school for the betterment of all students.
Develop the collective ability of a leadership team to work with staff to effectively ensure all students learn.
Meet the learning needs of diverse student populations, such as English Language Learners.

Enrollment is for teams of up to 5 members, including teacher leaders and administrators.  Participants must attend all six sessions.
