TARGET AUDIENCE: ALL HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT LEADS AND SCHOOL LEADERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND
This webinar for district leads and school leaders will introduce the newly released resource, Supporting High School Completion: A Tool Kit for Success. In this one hour introduction, the Tool Kit’s components and structure will be reviewed, highlighting its purpose as a process to support schools in working with youth at risk of not completing high school. Provincial learning opportunities through the Alberta Regional Professional Development Consortia (ARPDC) to support implementation of the Tool Kit will be shared. Shift the lens in your school from ‘What supports are available?’ to ‘How can we leverage the resources we have to remove the barriers preventing successful high school completion for this student?’ with this dynamic new resource.
This learning opportunity is being offered through a High School Completion grant from Alberta Education
