ls4The primary purpose at this year's Value Schools Leadership Summit in June was the implementation of Leverage Leadership by our academic teams and educators.

Principals, vice-principals and academic coaches from each school presented accountability plans intended to provide excellent, targeted, and supported instruction across each school campus.

In part, leadership teams used the book Leverage Leadership, A Practical Guide to Building Exceptional Schools by Paul Bambrick-Santoyo as a guide and clear starting point for their work.

The opportunity only solidified our commitment to the values and helped us better understand that all students matter!”
-- Robert Poyer, Principal, University Prep Value

Their goal: focus their efforts and experience to help all our educators get the guidance and skills they need to ensure all students reach their highest academic potential. By sharing plans, leaders from each campus borrowed from and built on the ideas heard throughout the day, learning and supporting one another as they went.

Rob Poyer, Principal at University Prep Value High School, reflected on the event by saying, "We were able to work collaboratively to help our students reach their fullest potential by creating detailed coaching plans for our teachers. We had the opportunity to present our plans to leaders at each campus and utilize the best practices emerging from all our schools. The opportunity only solidified our commitment to the values and helped us better understand that all students matter!"

Our CEO David Doyle stated one of the most important outcomes Value Schools seeks for its faculty and staff: "We want our teachers to say, 'I want to teach at a Value Schools because its leadership will train and support me, developing my own potential as a teacher for the benefit of all our students.'"
