Administrators Workshop with Ralph Wales


How can administrators support inclusive practices in every aspect of the school community? How can the administration support the equity work of teachers? Join us on February 15, 2018 at Concord Academy for a day-long workshop that will examine these questions and prepare you to support diversity work within your school.


This workshop is recommended for Heads, Division heads, Board members, Admissions/Placement, Financial Aid, Business Office, Development and Marketing personnel.


Please bring a policy or procedure from your own work that you would like to work with.
