Mid-July is approaching, and for Pivot that means the California School Boards Association (CSBA) Summer Leadership Institute is here. Members of our team, Dr. Arun Ramanathan, Carla Hulce, and Deborah Sims, will be heading to Sacramento July 15th-16th to team up with Lauren Weisskirk from EdReports.org, Mt. Diablo Unified School District superintendent, Dr. Nellie Meyer, and San Juan Unified Board President, Pam Costa, on a series of workshops at the CSBA summer institute entitled: Getting It Right for Kids: How School Board Members Can Support the Successful Implementation of California’s New Standards.
Pivot’s partnership with the CSBA for the Summer Leadership Institute is a unique and exciting opportunity for hundreds of school board members from districts across California. Over the two days, Pivot will present them with information on best practices in Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards implementation in three key areas: assessments, professional development and curriculum adoption. Participants will have a chance to work through myths and facts in standards implementation and assessment. They will learn about best practices in 21st century professional development from Dr. Nellie Meyer, Carla Hulce, and Pam Costa. They will be exposed to the work of EdReports.org and its powerful, timely reviews of curriculum. After these workshops, board members are sure to walk away with great new ideas in supporting their districts’ efforts to implement the standards, support teachers and improve student outcomes.
