• Principal Study Council

  • Join fellow Chester County principals in the 2019-20 Principal Study Council for a collaborative study and discourse on research-based practices for creating a school culture of equity for all.

    The Principal Study Council offers Chester County principals multiple opportunities to grow their understanding of how adverse childhood experiences, the impact of implicit bias and student anxiety affect student success.

    Through collaborative study and discourse on research-based practices, participants learn how cultural responsiveness, positive psychology and trauma-informed practices can lead to creating positive schools that reduce the risk factors associated with low academic achievement. At the October 24 kick-off meeting, author and education leader Jimmy Casas will share his insights into what it takes to cultivate a community of learners and strategies on how to reach disengaged students and ensure learners feel cared for, empowered and inspired to be their best.
