Text: Coherence: The Right Drivers in Action for Schools, Districts, and Systems by Michael Fullan and Joanne Quinn

The learning opportunities are designed to align with Michael Fullan’s four components of the Coherence Framework:
· Focused direction to build collective purpose;
· Cultivating collaborative cultures while clarifying individual and team roles;
· Deepening learning to accelerate improvement and foster innovation;
· Securing accountability from the inside out.

The sessions are structured to highlight and dig deeper into what drives and shapes a “successful and sustainable approach” to the work of curriculum leaders along the calendar year. Using an “experts in the field” approach, participants will connect with skilled practitioners who can speak to meeting the varied expectations of curriculum leaders across districts, along with the strengths of networking, systems design, improvement cycles, contemporary approaches to curriculum, instruction, and assessments, and communication. Participants will also have opportunities to address problems of practice, review resources, design solutions, and create responsive action plans that will lead to greater success.

Participants will receive guidance in the following areas:
· Vision and Systems-Design
· Relationship Building and Distributing Leadership
· Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Design
· Continuous Improvement Planning and Measuring Progress
· MTSS Models
· Professional Learning and Capacity building
· Grants Development and Management
· Contemporary Education Issues: Local, State, National Personalized learning
· Digitally-Powered Communication (including social media)
