Future Ready Schools (FRS) today announced a series of free regional events to support school and district leaders in creating policies, procedures, and practices that transform teaching and learning. These five FRS “institutes” will feature professional learning for superintendents, district leaders, principals, teacher leaders, and instructional coaches, IT directors, and librarians/media specialists. To date, FRS has held more than thirty institutes, serving more than 650 school district teams and more than 2,100 educators.
FRS is working with an advisory board of education experts to create the research-based, two-day agenda filled with personalized professional learning opportunities for educators led by expert facilitators. Each FRS institute will launch ongoing regional networks of enthusiastic implementation experts who will act as mentors to support and host follow-up activities to ensure districts have the resources needed to create customized, actionable personalized learning plans.
The 2018 FRS institutes are FREE, but space is limited. Dates and locations are as follows:
Sept 10–11: Mansfield, OH
Sept 17–18: Chicago, IL
October 25–26: Atlanta, GA
November 12–13: Portland, OR
November 29–30: Ashburn, VA
Registration is open to up to five members per district at www.futureready.org/institutes.
The institutes are based on the FRS framework and include differentiated sessions for district team members, along with extensive training for FRS project managers on the FRS interactive planning dashboard, a free online tool that serves more than 1,000 school districts and 15,000 educators.
