Transformational Leaders Institute: A Systems Approach to Transforming Schools, Classrooms, and People

“…we need to examine the institutional forces and traditions that prevent us from having an unimpeded view of our current reality and thus form a barrier to constructive improvement. (9)”

 Schmoker, M. J. (2006). Results now. Alexandria, VA: ASCD

Mike Schmoker’s relentless persistence to transform schools shines through in his book, Results Now: How We Can Achieve Unprecedented Improvements in Teaching and Learning. His succinct prose articulates a call to action for leaders unlike any other school improvement resource.

Using Schmoker’s work as a foundation, the Transformational Leaders Institute offered at Region 13 provides an opportunity for campus and district level leaders to engage in meaningful, research-based professional development focused on school improvement efforts. During this institute, leaders will focus on systemic change for educational systems and will hone in on five specific aspects of such change, including:

  • Envisioning Greatness: Creating Urgency in Exemplary Schools
  • Empowering Change: Focused Acts of Improvement Through Meaningful Conversations
  • Unlocking Potential: High Performance is Achieved through Powerful Communication and Collaboration
  • Experiencing Excellence: Reaching New Heights Through the Art and Science of Teaching
  • Leading and Trailing Indicators: Becoming an Information Rich School

In addition to receiving a personal copy of Mike Schmoker’s book, Results Now, participants of the Transformational Leaders Institute will also acquire Leading School Change by Todd Whitaker. We’d like to extend an invitation to all campus and district leaders to register via e-campus by October 23, 2012 (#FA1224857) for what we expect to be a fruitful and meaningful institute. The first of five sessions throughout the 2012-13 school year begins on October 30, 2012.
