Take-a-Ways:

  • The main question was: How do we cultivate a coherent district-ward system?
    • Many systems will say the answer is alignment, but Fullan argues that often means structure and that doesn’t work.
  • Districts and schools need to work on the same page. Districts need to develop a partnership with schools that encourages a we-we identity.
  • Schools should be in a network with 3-4 other schools. In this network, schools learn from one another and build relationships so that they feel like a system on the move.
