Summer Institute

The SCOE Summer Institute is an opportunity for school district teams to come together over three days to learn alongside one another and think deeply about transforming learning experiences for students in their systems. The Summer Institute employs an experiential, learn-by-doing approach that will allow educators to step into the role of learners as they explore new methods for tackling persistent problems of practice.

About the 2019 Summer Institute

​ The theme of this year's Institute is "Tools for Transformation." Participants will engage with their own team members and those from other local districts in the exploration of tools, strategies, and protocols for leading improvement efforts in school settings. Throughout the three day Summer Institute, participants will toggle between their role as a learner and their role as an educational leader as they plan how to best employ these new practices in their own contexts.
