Adaptive Schools Training with KSDE (Day 3 of 4)


Wednesday, January 31, 8:30am – 3:30pm


Orion Education & Training 13939 Diagonal Rd. Clearwater, KS. 67026


Training Dates: 10/13/23, 10/16/23, 1/31/24, 2/1/24  - Participants should commit to attending all four days.

In this 4-day workshop, participants will learn how to build strong collaborative and caring work cultures, in which results-oriented faculties work together for continuous school improvement. Participants will explore the latest practical findings in organizational development, team learning, and navigating the currents of change. Participants will learn practical frameworks and tools for developing collaborative groups that bring collective responsibility in student learning. Leaders and group members will learn ways to influence and attain more productive and satisfying meetings in which members develop new norms and skills for collegial interaction, goal clarification, problem-solving, and decision-making. Working in a variety of settings, skilled and confident facilitators will increase their ability to accelerate group development.

This training consists of hands-on practice with essential skills and strategies in a variety of areas ranging from meeting facilitation to exploring data and making decisions. Training participants develop basic communication skills that keep a group focused and efficient.

Adaptive Schools supports the efforts of professional communities in three key areas—when serving as the facilitator of a group, when developing a group, and when becoming a more skillful group member.
