Breakout sessions are designed and led by teachers, who will share their teams’ most innovative practices. Potential topics include:

** Cultivating shared purpose
** Leadership structures: the roles of principals, lead teachers, and head committees
** Securing and sustaining autonomy
** Defining and measuring success, and then readjusting for greater success
** Pushing the limits of zero tolerance, and determining the best ways to address students’ needs using a social justice lens
** Hiring practices and cultural on boarding
** Innovative teacher evaluations (e.g., peer, 360 degree)
** Embracing and resolving conflict
** Exposure to the different models of school that people are using was helpful in expanding all of our thinking about how and what to tackle next.
** Strategies for parent and community involvement
** Building allies, including relationships with districts, administrators, and unions
** Advocating for teacher-powered schools
** And more!
