Developed for curriculum leaders for today’s schools, this series of workshops focuses on the issues, resources, and skills that professionals need to keep your district ahead of the success curve of student achievement. Earn SCECHs, work toward a Specialty – District Level Curriculum & Instruction Enhancement, and become a leader in your field. This series is developed especially for newer and aspiring curriculum and instruction leaders.
The Curriculum Leaders Institute takes place over the course of two phases, over two years. Each phase has 5 face-to-face sessions, and online homework completed via Michigan Virtual’s learning platform, Brightspace. At the end of Phase II, participants will present a culminating Change Initiative Project to their peers.
Sessions are facilitated by seasoned professionals, including Marty Chaffee of Oakland Schools, Ben Boerkoel of MDE, Dr. Kathy Peasley of Gratiot-Isabela RESD, Carmen Kennedy of The Skilman Foundation, and more.
Although participation for the enhancement is encouraged for all participants, participation in the Institute strictly for professional learning is also permitted and encouraged.
