CA Small School District Leadership Institute

Register for the Small School District Leadership Institute 

Personalized professional development tailored for small school district leaders.

Don’t travel the leadership road alone. 

We are better together. 

Join the ‘22-’23 California Small School District Leadership Institute! 

The Institute is built around three system pillars: 

→ Transformational Leadership

→ High Impact Data and Instruction  

→ Effective Governance

Anticipated areas of focus include: development of clear goals with impact for the Board and the Superintendent; alignment and allocation of resources for system improvement; multi-grade level strategies; and capacity building to sustain and scale.

Veteran superintendents and content area experts will serve as Institute faculty to support exploration of improvement design and implementation.   

Institute Structure: 

  • Full Institute Workshops (6 virtual workshops in total with dates to be determined by participants) 
  • Common Characteristic Learning Groups (4 virtual meetings in total with dates to be determined by participants)
  • Coaching sessions with veteran superintendents and other Institute faculty after each Learning Group (scheduled individually) 
  • One In-person meeting to celebrate the learnings before the SSDA Conference in March (half-day) 

Please note:

  • The dates are to be determined by participants. 
  • The registration cost includes all sessions, materials, and a digital resource bank including district-specific tools. 
  • If you are a district under 250 enrollment, please contact SSDA to discuss pricing. Our intention is to not have cost be prohibitive for attendance by any district. 
  • While superintendents can attend alone, we highly encourage joining with another district colleague to share the learning and ensure learning and action steps can be held by a team.
