These days, the success of public schools is too often determined by what happens outside the classroom. As a result, superintendents are working harder than ever before just to make it possible for teachers to teach and students to learn. Declining trust in public institutions, ideologically divided communities, employees frayed by a roller coaster of variants have left district leaders playing defense for too long.

In 2022, it’s time to reclaim the narrative.

This summer, EAB invites you to participate in an exclusive, two-day summit designed to help superintendents create the conditions for their schools to thrive.

Agenda

Informed by recent surveys and interviews with district leaders nationwide, our research presentations and facilitated discussions will provide participants with tools for success in the evolving role of a superintendent. Topics will include:

Navigating Divisive Conversations and Preventing District Flashpoints

  • District leaders are spending twice the time combatting political and social flashpoints at a time when student outcomes and morale are at all-time lows. Most districts haven’t changed their response processes in years, even when the flashpoints of today are entirely different – namely, they are multi-faceted and comprised of factors that regularly go unaddressed. Consequently, districts aren’t fully responding, and time otherwise spent on strategic initiatives is wasted as flashpoints continue to drag on. Instead, superintendents need a new approach to flashpoint response that recognizes the complexity and nuance of today’s problems. Lessons from out of industry shows how to quickly deconstruct a complex flashpoint into its simple parts and then deploy appropriate strategies accordingly. This study will teach superintendents how to do this, thus reducing the likelihood that complex flashpoints will drag on and derail regular work toward strategic priorities.

Pathways to Postsecondary Success: How EAB Can Bring Together K-12 and Higher Ed

  • Nothing breeds calm better than stories of success, so we will close this summit by returning to your mission and providing practical strategies that districts can deploy to help those students impacted by the disruptions of the pandemic graduate with confidence and successfully transition to their next chapter. Learn how to enable and celebrate these stories to re-build a culture of confidence in the months and years ahead.

Supporting Successful and Sustainable Principal Leadership

  • A skilled and collaborative team is critical to the success of every district – and superintendent. But before the pandemic, 7 in 10 principals felt ill-prepared for the realities of their role. How many would answer differently today? We will explore how the integration of cutting-edge leadership strategies from beyond the education industry can better equip your principals to navigate today’s complex landscape, and the steps you can take to best support them through the reality of their role today.

Website and Digital Strategies for Marketing Your District to the Community

  • 80% of superintendents believe that districts should more proactively market their schools to their communities. A clear strategic narrative is essential for any organization to thrive through periods of uncertainty. This session will provide an overview of digital marketing channels, community expectations of content, cohesive banding and governance, and the importance of a digital content strategy. District leaders will have the opportunity to assess their maturity in message management.
