Working with the Board—What Works and What Doesn’t

A healthy relationship between the school leader and their board isn’t just preferred, it is a necessity if your program is to thrive and become all it can be for God’s glory. In this session, we will take a closer look at best practices and take plenty of time to discuss and share together what a strong relationship can—and should—look like for your program.

Education in a Violent World: Protecting Tomorrow From Today

School safety practices in these modern times have created a great need for a multi-faceted approach to threat mitigation and response. Dr. Steve Webb will present his PARA Mindset Theory, assessing vulnerabilities to 21st Century threats to student and staff safety and using Behavioral Threat Assessment Teams (B.A.T.)—a social systems approach to mitigation practices to help prevent violence in schools.

Professional Development for Christian School Educators and Leaders

Professional development (PD) opportunities are nearly universal in the experiences of U.S. educators, both in public school settings and in Christian schools. The question of which PD strategies are most effective has become more critical in recent years, as schools face increasing internal and external pressures to improve student outcomes and optimize instructional expenditures. As a result, many school leaders are seeking to identify PD opportunities with high return on investment (ROI) in terms of student learning and achievement.

In an effort to address this issue systematically, a comprehensive literature synthesis was commissioned by ACSI (Swaner 2016). The synthesis, which surveyed over 500 scholarly articles and resources over the past 20 years, asked the question, “What are best practices in PD for Christian school teachers and leaders?” While little research was found specific to Christian education, what was available corroborated much of the broader literature on PD in K–12 schools. A set of characteristics of effective PD were identified in the literature, as well as a range of practices for which there exists research on their effectiveness. The synthesis also reviewed the evidence for the importance of cultures of continuous improvement to the effectiveness of any PD efforts.
