Education has changed drastically in the last few weeks and months. There is an unprecedented opportunity for school and district leaders to become indispensable in helping their school communities navigate – now and when schools open again. Teachers and staff are doing an incredible amount of work to embrace change that happened in an instant. Not only do we need to provide immediate support, we also need to co-create a future for when we all return safely to schools. Educators must be empowered to share understanding with their students about the impact this global crisis will have on everyone. They will have to mitigate the effects – particularly for those living in poverty – and should take the opportunity to make enduring improvements to education.

CT3 offers high-value professional development and teacher trainings that build school capacity through improved pedagogy. Since 2009, we have coached leaders to improve their school culture while raising the achievement of their students and building the efficacy of their teachers. Our work has moved the needle in hundreds of schools across the country resulting in double-digit decreases in out-of-school suspensions, gains in graduation rates, and increases in teacher retention.
This was by far the best PD I've ever attended. I am ready for the next school year to begin. I feel I have the necessary tools to be an effective leader in our school.
