Currently running: Principal Study Council, 2020-2021, All Students Must Thrive

  • Headshot of Dr. Tyrone Howard

    Program facilitated by Dr. Tyrone Howard

    The 2020-21 Principal Study Council offers principals multiple opportunities to grow their understanding of how educators of all levels nurture the social-emotional wellness that is essential for all students to thrive. Through collaborative study and discourse on research-based practices, participants learn a critical wellness approach that brings together three theoretical frameworks relevant to equity in schools - wellness, critical pedagogy, and critical race theory.

    At the October 22 kick-off meeting, author and education leader Tyrone Howard 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.
