Districts are increasingly focused on college and career readiness goals for every student. Leaders now have the difficult task of creating strategies that help schools prioritize readiness and build access to advanced coursework.
Join us for the first edWebinar in our two-part series on “Promoting District Priorities Through Master Scheduling.” This edWebinar will cover both theory and practical case studies that demonstrate how to put into action the strategies to achieve your readiness goals. We will also discuss how you can support your schools in developing master schedules for college and career readiness.
In part one of this series, “Expanding Access for College and Career Readiness,” you’ll learn:
- Why the master schedule is a fundamental tool to enable college and career readiness
- What strategies can stimulate access to the rigorous coursework
- How your team can use school, student, and course data to promote readiness
This edWebinar will be of particular value to school and district leaders at the middle and high school levels. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
