Presented by: Dr. Stacey Loyless and Dr. Shelly Albritton
June 24, 2020 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM CDT
In this session we examine the necessity of analyzing and being reflective about Process – what we do as adults. The triangulation of Vision-Process-Outcome is paramount in leading schools toward authentic equity. Visionshould inform Process and Process should influence Outcomes. Far too often when we look at our school organizations, we fail to recognize the organization’s Vision leading to uninformed Processes. The lack of consistency in the goals, philosophy, and priorities among school constituents and stakeholders can lead to Processes that results in lower levels of student achievement. Further complicating the situation is the nearly exclusively focus on student Outcome data as a measure of school performance. Thus, the focus on Processconnects Vision to Outcome.
Two-hour session targeted for those who desire to have a positive leadership influence in their school and district, regardless of current position or title.
