"Imagine becoming part of a community where you are engaging in conversations that not only challenge your thinking but give you concrete strategies to implement change in your school community. That's Change School."
~Mary Ann Moran, 2016 Massachusettes Principal of the Year, Nipmuc, MA
Education is changing.
Let's lead it. Together.
Never before have school leaders and educators in general been under more pressure to see into the future. Change in the world is accelerating. Technologies now allow us to learn and create in ways that even 10 years ago seemed far-fetched. Traditional systems and practices of schooling are increasingly at odds with the skills, literacies and dispositions that our children will need to thrive moving forward.
Bringing schools into a much more complex future is difficult work. It requires a deep understanding of how children learn, a full appreciation of the many complex ways that the world is changing, and extensive insight into the new and amazing potentials of the modern classroom. It takes courage and commitment, and it requires the full efforts of a community of learners to accomplish.
Change School prepares you for that process and that future. It's not a course; it's an experience, a deep-dive into what you believe, what you know, and what you can do. If you're ready to create meaningful, sustainble change for the students you serve, join us.
See what's possible with Change School
An intense 8-week sprint that builds your connections and capacity for change, and lifetime membership in a passionate community of coaches and leaders who help you make it happen. Cost: $1,497 (US)
Thinking differently and building the capacity to turn thoughts into action isn't easy. It takes courage to push through the barriers that prevent change and an intense commitment to see the process through. We designed the 8 modules of Change School to be both enlightening and challenging. The experience will fundamentally alter the way you see schools, the way you make decisions, and the way you engage others in your journey.
