About The Institute

This institute will be a time for district leaders and teacher teams to develop a cohesive plan that will impact the lives of their students and build a culturally responsive school environment in today’s sense of normalcy. It will also set and achieve positive goals around social and emotional (SEL) learning.

Not only will you learn and explore the latest innovations in your field of study, but you'll also have the chance to connect with other educational professionals from outside your school district/state. You do not want to miss this 2-day event with education thought leaders.
