New Leaders in a Changed Landscape


Many new leaders are discovering an immediate need for new or increased skills as a result of sudden and significantly different circumstances in our schools. ISACS has created an event for all new leaders: current, emerging, aspiring or those in new roles, who are learning to lead in a changed school landscape. If you are a new division head, dean, department chair, administrator, or other school leader, we invite you to hear and learn from the following national experts during this powerful virtual program. 

New Leaders in a Changed Landscape will be offered via Zoom, Wednesday, June 16-Friday, June 18. We encourage active participation in all sessions as each day will provide important opportunities to join in small group conversations, discussions and sharing with others.
