Experts Share How to Build Buy-In for Educational Initiatives

by Andi Atchison on October 9, 2017

Istation is hosting a live Webinar on Thursday, October 12 at 2 p.m. EDT to give you the skills and information you need when soliciting buy-in for new program initiatives. This Webinar is a must-see for any school or district looking to create a culture of high expectations and increased job satisfaction among faculty.

Educational leaders from Lee’s Summit R-7 School District in Missouri will join us for this Webinar as the experts in rolling out district-wide initiatives. Our guest speakers will be Dr. Katie Collier, Associate Superintendent of Instruction and Leadership, and Anne Stichnoth, K-6 English Language Arts Curriculum Specialist. Learn more about these extraordinary leaders at the end of this post!

The mission of Lee’s Summit is to “prepare each student for success in life.” In order to achieve this, administrators implemented a robust district-wide Response to Instruction model, providing intervention for students to support them in achieving their learning goals. The initiative was successfully rolled out to 18 elementary schools, involving over 400 faculty and staff in the process. Learning from their experience and success can help you achieve the same!
