WHAT’S RIGHT IN EDUCATION

THIS EVENT HAS CLOSED.

SPECIAL INVITATION TO EDUCATION LEADERS:

ENGAGE WITH OTHER LEADERS DRIVEN BY PASSION, WORTHWHILE WORK, & MAKING A DIFFERENCE!

Nothing excites us more than recognizing our amazing partners. At our 6th annual What’s Right in Education conference, we’ll celebrate the results our partners achieve through their innovative work, and we’ll share evidence-based practices that can transform your organization and strengthen your leadership skills.

You and your team will get ideas (and excitement) from successful superintendents, school board members, and leaders from our Studer Education partner districts around the country. Our national keynote speakers will motivate, challenge, and inspire. And this year, our boat ride at the end of day one will have food, drinks and music while traveling along the Chicago nighttime skyline. You’ll leave Chicago recharged, reengaged, and ready to tackle a new school year. We can’t wait to see you there. What’s Right In Education typically sells out, so register soon.

PRICE: $175

Post-Conference Workshops – Wednesday, August 2, 2017

2:00 PM – 3:30 PM

New Leader Onboarding (by Invitation)

In this 90-minute workshop, we welcome our partner-organization leaders who are new to their roles, the organization, and/or the work of Studer Education℠.  During this opportunity to “catch up” with their colleagues, we’ll provide a complimentary copy of Maximize Performance: Creating a Culture of Educational Excellence to each participant. Studer Education℠ coaches will provide background information about our organization and highlight key tactics and principles that leaders may be expected to execute in their new leadership roles.

 

Offered in response to requests from our partners, we strongly encourage partner superintendents to extend an invitation to this session to leaders who have just joined or are about to join the organization. There is no additional charge for this workshop.

Aligning the Nine Principles® to Achieve Performance Excellence with the Baldrige Framework

In this workshop, Dr. JoAnn Sternke, former Superintendent of Schools of the 2013 Baldrige recipient Pewaukee School District, will provide an overview of the Baldrige framework and share how the Studer Education℠ Nine Principles®, surveys, scorecards and other key tactics position districts to begin or advance a Baldrige journey.  Participants will receive a copy of the Baldrige Excellence Builder, and a recently updated crosswalk between the Nine Principles and the Baldrige framework.

 

We are offering this workshop to support our partner organizations who already use the Baldrige Excellence Framework as well as those who have expressed an interest in learning more about how the Baldrige Framework could strengthen continuous improvement efforts.  This workshop is open to all attendees, and there is no additional charge.

3:30 PM – 4:30 PM
