March 3 and 4 in Winston-Salem, NC. Click here to register!

Our event this year will begin on Tuesday, March 3 at 5:00 pm with a reception and dinner and will conclude on Wednesday, March 4 at 3:30 pm. This annual event brings together principals and assistant principals in a collegial, non-evaluative setting to share and support each other’s practice. The theme for the institute is Leading Continuous Progress in Math Achievement, and we have a strong agenda planned.

The evening of March 3rd: This festive reception and dinner will be lead by Dr. Peter Eley who is a sophist that thrives in an environment of curiosity, creativity, and engagement. As a professor that serves as Interim Chair of the Health, Physical and Secondary Education Department at Fayetteville State University and Chair of the Elizabeth City State University Foundation, he is responsible for a full range of administrative leadership, coaching, training, and consulting activities. Dr. Eley holds a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from Elizabeth City State University, a Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics and Mathematics Education from North Carolina StateUniversity, and a Ph.D. in Mathematics Education.

The morning of March 4th: Keynote speaker Dr. Lee Stiff is the Associate Dean for faculty and Academic Affairs at the North Carolina State University and a professor of mathematics education. As such, he has taught courses in mathematics and mathematics education, including uses of technology in teaching mathematics, and the mathematics education of African-American children. Dr. Stiff’s research and other professional activities have focused on teaching strategies, problem solving, the mathematics education of African-American children, and uses of instructional technologies in mathematics teaching. His research methodologies include experimental design, surveys and interviews, and classroom-based investigations.

The afternoon of March 4th: Unpack best practices in building elementary and secondary math instructional programs that result in students achieving positive school outcomes; classroom visitations and observations led by the math department at ISA’s partner school in Winston-Salem, Carver High School; and small group activities during which school leaders engage in a mathematics work-in-progress protocol where leaders will both receive and provide peer feedback.

Please Note: Overnight lodging, travel, and meals during the Institute will be provided to ISA partner school administrators and invited regional administrators. That said, some of you may have those costs already covered by your ISA contracts; please ask your senior program director for help.
