communityThis course module provides practical strategies to assist school leaders in creating a learning community that will shape a school’s shared vision, facilitate collaboration through teams and committees, and establish a climate that supports child-centered education in a collegial and caring environment, enhancing student achievement.

Effective educational leaders build a shared vision of student academic success and well-being. The effective school leader works to translate the vision of students’ experiences into measurable goals and outcomes.

In the absence of a great dream pettiness prevails. Shared visions foster risk taking, courage and innovation. Keeping the end in mind creates the confidence to make decisions even in moments of crisis.”
Peter Senge
