Title Improving Student Performance and Your Educational Leadership through Accreditation
Programme Educators' Conference
Days Offered October 17th
Description Schools throughout the world use the accreditation process as a vehicle for continuous school improvement.  This workshop will demonstrate how the steps in the accreditation process can be used to organize a school for sustainable school improvement. The session will address the changing conditions that have led to the need for a specific style of school leadership that can: (i) Create a school culture that supports sustained change; (ii) Balance school improvement activities against the other competing demands; and (iii) More efficiently and effectively use existing resources, energy and time. Focusing on the decisions that the adults in the organization make (school board members, administrators and teachers) specific leadership behaviors are identified that place school improvement at the core of a school’s day to day operations.
