Improving outcomes for students is a family affair for Patricia Spradley and Tracy Hill. Both educators see parents as critical partners in improving student achievement—and have actively sought to engage them in the curriculum and school community. For Hill, that means taking parents along on college visits, or offering tips about the latest instructional strategies over donuts. For Spradley, that means offering a smorgasbord of classes to parents and community members through the district’s parent academy. In Springfield public schools, moms and dads and grandmas and neighbors can learn how to help with homework or college applications, but they can also learn to knit or pursue their GED—anything that helps them serve as role models for lifelong learning.
Join this webinar to learn what these two Leaders To Learn From are doing in their districts to get parents and communities engaged, and how they are sharing their expertise and best practices with their peers

Re-imagining Career and College Readiness: STEM, Rigor and Equity  (Register HERE)
Sammamish High School is a comprehensive neighborhood school serving a diverse group of 1,000 students in a suburb of Seattle. Over the last five years the school has undergone a renewal process by cultivating teacher leadership and community partnerships. Teachers have been developing problem-based learning curriculum (PBL) in order to deepen learning, teach 21st century skills, and increase college and career readiness. PBL at Sammamish is defined by seven key elements: authentic problems, authentic assessments, student voice, culturally responsive instruction, developing expertise, academic discourse, and collaboration. With a shift towards this new pedagogy came an increased need for technology access. In the fall of 2014 all Sammamish students were given a hybrid PC with digital ink and OneNote Class Notebooks. The 1-to-1 program with software like OneNote has become an integral part of teaching and learning because it facilitates student collaboration, provides increased opportunities for differentiation of instruction, and increases the quality and quantity of feedback.

Algebra Readiness: Equipping K-8 Students for Success (Register HERE)
As the focus on standards-readiness grows, educators need reassurance that they’re not just teaching students how to pass a test, but also supporting their exploration, creativity, and deep understanding of applied knowledge. Joe Trahan, former middle school teacher, will discuss the pedagogical approach to preparing students for formal algebra. He'll share opportunities educators have to introduce the exploration of abstract concepts at an early age—at a time when students are more focused on concrete mathematical concepts.
Topics covered will include:
• Opportunities to foster mathematical exploration at an early age
• Digital tools to support concrete and abstract mathematical manipulations
• How to assess readiness and intervene appropriately for students that have gaps
This webinar is targeted toward middle school educators as well as elementary educators interested in supporting deeper understanding of applied knowledge in math.

Connecting the Classroom to the Cloud (Register HERE)
Sarasota County Schools, located in Sarasota, Fla., has partnered with Microsoft to provide Microsoft Office 365 to their students and employees districtwide. Through their existing partnership, all staff and students have access to the latest version of Microsoft Office for use at home, as well as cloud storage for their most important files via OneDrive for Business. The districtwide implementation of Office 365 has helped staff and students lessen the digital divide that exists between home and school. This has enhanced the staff’s and the students’ ability to create, share, collaborate, and present information both inside and outside of the classroom.
