The Leadership for College Readiness training gives administrators the tools they need to instill effective systemic change and a college-ready culture on campuses. Structures, processes, protocols, and systems within a school have significant impacts on its culture. Over two days, participants learn what these terms mean, how they are interdependent, and how to design them in alignment with the mission and vision of their school.

    Participants will become familiar with the change process and what to anticipate when a school concentrates its efforts to reorganize the structures, processes, protocols, and systems to strategically plan and give purposeful meaning to all the efforts to improve performance for all students. Participants will analyze examples of how a school might be effectively organized to assist both students and staff in being successful and supporting college readiness.

    Who Should Attend

    Educators, principals, site and district administrators, and leadership teams from any AVID or non-AVID K–12 schools.
