Educators navigated major challenges this spring. As we move to a “post-hunker-down” but pre-vaccine phase, the time is right to start preparing for the fall. Gather a team together to gain a head start on organizing and simplifying the workplace changes that may take place. Reflect on what worked this spring, and plan for transitions that minimize the loss of instructional time and are easily understood by district staff, students and families.
The Alaska School Leadership Institute (ASLI) 2020 will focus on the question: How should we plan for opening school next fall — and where do students begin?
- Building resiliency in students and staff
- Communicating through a major disruption and tools for effective communication – with colleagues, students and families
- Using data for designing fall instruction
- Planning for different scenarios for opening school next year
Considerations for designing instruction in the coming year:
* Ways to assess where to begin
* Ways to plan for tailored instruction and supporting academic gaps in the coming year
* Problem-solving ideas for instructional effectiveness
* Collaborative processes for designing effective instructional plans
Building and Central Office Leaders
Planning Forward Scenarios: Have a Plan and Back-Up Plan (or Two)
* Consider how you will operate under several fall situations:
A: Return to school and plan for learning gaps
B: Blended model of online/packet and some in building instruction
C: Remote learning to start year (packet/online)
* Organize for transitions that minimize the loss of instructional time.
* Plan effective communication and outreach for staff, students and families.
The 12th Alaska School Leadership Institute will be virtual this year, but will maintain the ASLI tradition of networking and information-sharing through the Critical Friends protocol and dedicated district team meeting times.
The institute will primarily take place online, but is designed to be interactive and move between online information and offline readings. Zoom time will be a maximum of 4 hours each day with regular breaks.
Target Audience: teacher leaders, principals, site leaders, and district leaders from small schools or rural school districts.
Teachers will not have a separate strand from building and central office leaders, but will work together in role alike groups each afternoon.
Registration Fee: $275 Level 1 ASDN member districts / $475 Level 2
University Credit: One optional 500-level credit will be available for attending and interacting in the live conference sessions, and completing a follow-up action plan for the fall (Tuition: $125).
Presenters/Facilitators: Lexie Domaradzki, Bobbi Jo Erb, Ricky Robinson, Victoria Romero, Gary Whiteley
