This year’s workshop Cohort 2 topics include efficient school operations, effective instructional practices, how to engage parents, and strategies for continuous improvement.

Through a pair of intense two-day overview trainings and three quarterly sessions, these teams will build strategies and skills to help students in their schools do more.
