About the Conference

As an instructional leader do you want to:

  • Know what the latest research tells us about reading comprehension?
  • Hear from experienced literacy educators who have solved literacy problems with countless states and schools?
  • Build relationships with other principals in high needs schools who are building their literacy programs?

This one-day opportunity will offer specific information about school wide literacy assessment, allocation of staff, organizing and selecting materials, planning effective professional development, and evaluating literacy instruction. An optional reception with appetizers will enhance the many networking opportunities!
