MOESC Hosts Leading for the Future Series
Great advances in industry, technology and society happen during disruptive events, and 2020 has been nothing short of disruptive, especially for schools. To help school administrators become leaders who do more than survive, Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center is hosting the Leading for the Future administrative professional development series.
The course, designed for current building and district level administrators, will be led by Lisa Riegel, President / CEO of Educational Partnerships Institute, LLC (EPI). It will be offered in a hybrid format with six sessions, 2 face-to-face and 4 online. On October 27th, MOESC will host the first in-person session. Classes will be held online in November, January, February and March. Finally, in April, another in-person session will be held at MOESC to conclude the series.
Riegel will introduce EPI’s 7C Commitment Framework, designed to help administrators make the current disruption a positive force for change. In the series, they will generate a plan for change that is clear, coherent and identifies the cadence of implementation. They will strengthen collective efficacy and mitigate implementation barriers by building trust and a collaborative culture. Finally, they will implement an accountability and impact evaluation plan where they will be able to celebrate successes and coach to improve results.
MOESC Superintendent Kevin D. Kimmel said this training couldn’t be more timely. “This past spring we saw our school administrators and educators come through in extraordinary ways to compensate for school buildings being closed. For the time they had to prepare, everyone did a commendable job. This professional development will help administrators be more prepared for what may come, so their leadership is less reactive and more strategic.”
The cost for the series is $250 for a client district, and $600 for a non-client district. The registration deadline is October 20, 2020. Administrators interested can register at www.moesc.net/register. Credited contact hours can be used towards credit from Ashland University.
