WASA is proud to announce a set of spring regional meetings with Dr. Tammy Campbell entitled
Instructional Leadership: What are the Strategies School Leaders Utilize When Closing Gaps?
Spokane—March 6, 2023 |  Anacortes—March 7, 2023
This is a learning opportunity you will not want to miss!

With the increased recognition that learning gaps have increased, school leaders are now focused on approaches that have the highest impact on student learning. This interactive session will outline the research-based practices that close gaps in the classroom, school, and district level. Local districts will have time to share data-informed practices that are closing gaps and probe real problems of practice.


Now, more than ever, education leaders must take the lead in outlining and executing leadership approaches that center student outcomes and equity at the core of everything they do. Leadership and equity are one and the same. This work is not an event, rather a MINDSET and a way of being that must be a focus all year over multiple years.
