The school district in Spring Branch, Texas, has set an ambitious goal: by 2017 the ISD will double the number of students completing some form of higher education. How does a school district rethink principal, teacher and central office staff training to meet this goal? In this webinar, CRPE learns from compact leaders who have created a new model for how district and charter schools can share leadership training and best instructional practices. District leaders discuss how they have created organizational disruption by co-locating district and charter schools and participating in KIPP’s leadership programs, and charter leaders discuss the advantages and pain points of working with the district.
