The College of Education Center for Educational Innovation and Improvement (CEII) presents the School Improvement Summer Institute. CEII's School Improvement Summer Institute is designed for school and district leaders who know that despite the challenges their schools and communities face, they can make a positive difference in the lives of the students they serve. The SISI will engage school system leaders from across the state of Maryland in a collaborative and intensive two-day experience centered on the following themes:
- Equity: Most of our schools toughest problems center on the inequitable results we are getting from our students. Effective leaders must understand how equity and inequity persist in their unique school environments and create the culture and climate necessary to address them.
- Improvement: The students in our schools today can’t wait for a new education policy or massive new funding that is always promised but rarely delivered. Effective leaders must develop and design strategies to improve the quality of teaching and learning - and in turn student outcomes, with the systems, resources, and staffing available to them.
- Leadership: Having a formal role of authority in a school or school system does not make one a “leader”. Effective leaders are constantly developing their own leadership capacity and, more importantly, developing and distributing leadership across the organization.
