Symposium, n. - A gathering where experts discuss a topic; the free exchange of ideas
E.L. Achieve’s Symposia are two-day events for district teams – central office administrators, site principals, district and site coaches, and teacher leaders – to build a stronger community and more robust systems for serving English learners well.
Through job-alike sessions, a District Expo, and plenty of time for strategic planning, we explore practices that positively impact English learner achievement. Each day we spend the morning hours deepening our learning. In the afternoon we apply the learning to leading our initiative(s).
Sessions are designed for people who have knowledge of the initiative (Systematic ELD and/or Constructing Meaning), have participated in an institute or administrator sessions, and support implementation.
- Learn alongside our colleagues by sharing our experiences and accomplishments with the E.L. Achieve partner district community
- Deepen our learning around the Refining Our Practice skills to improve instruction, school culture, and systems of support
- Be prepared to strategically respond to changing needs and continuous improvement
For district teams exploring how to better serve English learners, there is a dedicated Symposium strand – Leadership Overview – to learn about E.L. Achieve’s approach and offerings.
