Presented by William Parrett and Kathleen Budge

Tuesday-Wednesday, November 29-30, 2016
Kent Phoenix Academy (Kent School District)

Kent, WA 98030

What does it take to disrupt poverty’s adverse influence on student learning? It requires far more than teachers’ diligent and often heroic efforts in their individual classrooms. Based on the ASCD book Turning High-Poverty Schools into High-Performing Schools, this institute will provide participants with a framework for collaborative action.
