Powerful shared learning that drives new practice
LSI’s Leadership Academy is a transformative, collaborative experience that supports your district initiative to deepen instructional rigor in every classroom.
The Academy creates a community of practice, free of judgment or fear, where a cadre of 75 educators can share their plans, strategies, and results as they implement a rigorous instructional model in their schools.
Some even start to serve as drop-in models of effective core instruction for others, providing inspiration and implementation support long after the Academy ends. Particularly successful schools may become an LSI Schools for Rigor showcasing live growth to other schools in your district and beyond.
Leadership Academy has given our leaders a language, focus and structure to support the systems shift to instruction that is student-centered with rigor for all students.
As a district, we are now all speaking the same language regarding rigorous instruction.
The Academy helps enact systemic, organizational, and practical change. It creates a cohort of influential advocates and instructional leaders who spread hope, strategies, and determination.
The Leadership Academy does more than gather passionate educators to pool their knowledge, share experiences, and develop a shared vision of great teaching and learning. It builds district capacity for change by bringing together instructional leaders from every level, from superintendents to teacher leaders: anyone who will be responsible for leading implementation.
When teams come together for whole-group learning, magic happens. Suddenly everyone has a better understanding of how practice and goals must align across each school and the district.
Research tells us that even the most experienced instructors grow when they regularly interact with a peer network.
Through the Leadership Academy, your team will collaborate, share practices, and review results and data among a close-knit community of colleagues. They’ll dive deep into a cycle of professional learning to get results that last beyond initial implementation.
One of the things the Leadership Academy has provided for us is consistent training districtwide. You have to have consistency to prevent schools from becoming islands. Pulling in the teacher coaches to go to the Leadership Academy trainings is so helpful because they can then take what they’ve learned back to their individual buildings so there is consistency across the district.
