You see necessary change—they see disruption.
You say outdated—they say tradition.
How can you bring your community together to support positive change in education?
Many traditional features of our school systems such as school schedules, course offerings, class rankings, grading systems, or academic standards—while often outdated—can be familiar and comforting to communities.

Here’s the truth: top-down, behind-closed-doors approaches to improving schools not only leave communities in the dark, but they rarely succeed.Yet when community members know they have been heard and understood, they feel included and empowered, not ignored—and they may even become your strongest advocates. Schools are a community’s greatest asset. That’s why the biggest changes should be undertaken in partnership with students, families, and community members.

This informative, fast-paced, daylong workshop will help educators get out of their own way, drop the jargon, communicate more effectively, and design experiences for community members that are engaging, inclusive, and authentic.
