Optional Leadership Lab for administrators

Two days in a PEBC Lab Classroom are included in this institute. If you are a school or district leader, we offer an option to spend the second Lab Classroom day in a Leadership Lab (space is limited). The first Lab Classroom day will be assigned based on your answers on the electronic registration form. If you choose to attend the Leadership Lab on the second lab day, you will spend the morning in a lab classroom at a school that has developed systemic practices across grade levels and has nurtured three lab classrooms over the last several years. You will learn with other leaders how to initiate support and sustain quality instruction in all classrooms.
