Implementing new, districtwide initiatives isn’t for the faint of heart—but with the right processes in place, diving into new practices can mean positive outcomes for students, teachers, and districts.

Join us for an engaging conversation focused on executing systems-level change and alignment. We explore the crucial steps of aligning with stakeholders on the why, what, and how of implementing district initiatives. Then, we transition into the application of this alignment to high-quality instructional materials (HQIM) implementation and high-quality professional learning. During this edWebinar, viewers:

  • Gain a clear understanding of the benefits of investing time and resources in planning and supporting district initiatives, including HQIM implementation
  • Get resources that empower you to plan for and execute HQIM adoption and implementation successfully
  • Explore transformative practices that drive positive outcomes for districts and students alike

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK-12 school and district leaders.
