2020-21 Leading for Learning Series

WOW is Now the Leading for Learning Series

The Leading for Learning Series (formerly WOW) uses a combination of site-based, virtual, and online activities to deliver simultaneous professional development to educator teams. School-based teams of teacher leaders and building/district administrators work side by side to improve academic outcomes for all students.

Unprecedented Times Leads to Shift of Focus

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives and how we do school. We have learned so much, and there is still so much more to learn! The incredible work we started with Solution Tree last year no longer addresses the most pressing questions and anxieties many educators are currently facing about the challenges of returning to school. The Leading for Learning (L4L) Series for 2020-21 has shifted to focus on the best practices related to teaching and learning during the pandemic. The Solution Tree speakers have graciously stepped aside to allow this series to address the immediate needs of Wisconsin students and teachers.

2020-21 FOCUS: How do we provide an equitable education for all learners during COVID-19 and beyond?
