Moving Schools Forward, On Purpose
Presented by Tom Hierck
If we truly aim to have a culture that embraces “learning for ALL”, we must begin with building effective relationships with all constituents of a school community.
The most common challenge is how to transition from a culture of compliance to a culture of commitment. How to move from ‘doing’ to ‘becoming’. From ‘my kids’ to ‘our kids.’ Creating a culture of collective responsibility and commitment is often-overlooked in a school’s journey. This process requires meaningful, collaborative conversations with all community members, as well as a focal point to connect the work.
Hear Tom share his insights on how to
- Embrace the idea of defining your WHY
- Align policy, procedure, and practice with purpose
- Understand the impact of DNA
- Discuss the four stages of authentic alignment
- Establish what is needed for a collective commitment
- Plan next steps in your school’s journey

Grading for Impact: Raising Achievement through Target-Based Assessment and Grading
Presented by Garth Larson
Educational systems continue to look for ways to maximize learning, increase achievement, and provide honest and accurate results to students and families. Target-based assessment, grading and reporting provides a practical solution to these goals.
This model provides feedback based on proficiency of academic and behavioral targets that are found through analyzing the standards. Finally, schools at all levels (elementary, middle, and high) can create a system that flows together in order to raise student achievement.
Join Garth in this interactive webinar to see practical tools and examples to make target-based assessment, grading and reporting work in ALL schools for ALL students in ALL communities.
