Summit Descriptions
New Leaders Summit -- For first-time administrators new to Montana and those that are in new roles in their schools & districts, and for those relatively new administrators who would like a refresher. Topics include presentations by the new SAM Leaders Professional Learning Program, OPI, the First 100 Days in Your Position, School Law 101, School Finance 101, Finding the Resources you Need, and Role-A-Like sessions.

Instructional Leadership Summit -- For administrators, educational leaders, teachers, and all individuals who support the education of Montana’s children! 
Day 1 features International Center for Leadership in Education Senior Consultant, Dr. Jim Warford, engaging the Summit participants with “Addressing Today’s Educational Challenges … Achieving Focus in the Midst of Initiative Overload.” Daggett Group ICLE research will help all educators use emerging trends to face down the overwhelming challenges that consume the agenda in so many schools.  This is a must to help you launch the 2015-16 school year in positive, productive way with your school team!  
Day 2 of the Instructional Leadership Summit begins with Paul Andersen, international speaker and 2011 Teacher of the Year keynote -- “Future Proofing Your School!” Although the scientific method allows us to unlock the secrets of the universe it falls short in providing solutions to difficult problems, like effective instruction.  A more appropriate solution can be found in the process of design.  Paul will share global strategies that can help school leaders position their schools to compete in an ever-changing educational landscape.  He will also introduce the process of design thinking as a tool for improving your schools today.  The Summit continues with Focus Zones, clearing the fog to allow you to dig deep into educational topics that will make a difference in your areas of interest and need.    Focus Zones include:
Technology; School Safety/Energy/Operations; Innovation; and Contemporary Issues and more.
