Leader in Me Symposium

A Leader in Me Symposium is being held March 4-5 in Bowling Green, KY.  Participants will see firsthand how two Kentucky schools are using Leader in Me to empower their students and infuse leadership into the culture and curriculum of each campus.

Students in the Leader in Me process are learning the skills absolutely essential to successful and meaningful lives – among them initiative, responsibility, communication, problem-solving, creativity, and teamwork.  As a result, their schools see more student, parent, and teacher engagement, higher academic achievement, and reduced discipline referrals.

As part of the symposium, participants will visit schools on March 4 with significant time to learn from students and teachers about the transformative power of this initiative. In the Practitioner Sessions, participants will learn from educators who are working with students to develop them as leaders, set goals, become accountable, and unleash their full potential.  Presentations from nationally renowned speakers, such as Lisa Fenn and Daniel Pink, will round out this in-depth exploration of leadership development.

Registration for the two-day event is open.  The fee for the two-day event is $295.

Symposium aim sto help schools reach digital parents

School administrators can learn how to communicate more effectively with today’s digital parents during an online symposium this month.

The Symposium on Parent Engagement, which will be hosted by Schoolwires on Oct. 22, will explore the many digital platforms available to actively involve parents in their children’s education.

Schoolwires, which is based in State College, Pa., provides technology products to more than 1,500 K-12 school districts and schools in the U.S. and China.

In addition to the symposium, Schoolwires teamed up with Project Tomorrow to develop the Administrator’s Guide to Reaching Digital Parents. The guide provides administrators with best practices that can be implemented to boost parent involvement and improve student achievement.

The guide also includes findings from Project Tomorrow’s 2012 Speak Up National Research Project that surveyed the use of emerging technologies to meet the needs of students, parents and educators. The survey found that 26 percent of school and district administrators believe that effectively communicating with parents continues to be a major challenge.
