Register now for an informative series of webinars based on Getting It Done: Leading Academic Success in Unexpected Schools, the timely new book by Karin Chenoweth, writer-in-residence, and Christina Theokas, director of research at The Education Trust. The authors examine the beliefs and practices of principals who lead high-achieving and rapidly improving schools that serve low-income students and students of color.

On Jan. 12, Kyla Wahlstrom, Director for Center for Applied Research and Education Improvement at the University of Minnesota, led the conversation “Principals as Organizers of Instruction” with discussants:

• Ricci Hall, principal of University Park Campus School in Worcester, Mass., a top-performing school where nearly all students, most of whom are from low-income households and many of whom have recently immigrated, graduate from high school and go to college;
• June Eressy, former principal of University Park Campus School who is working to achieve AYP by 2013 at Chandler Elementary, one of Massachusetts’ lowest performing schools, where she is the current principal; and
• Mary Haynes-Smith, principal of Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary in New Orleans, which serves low-income students and consistently outperforms the state.

Past sessions are available on-demand, and more are in the pipeline. Learn more and register now. Thanks to the generous support of The Wallace Foundation, The Education Trust is able to offer these webinars free of charge.
