As was highlighted at convocation, this year’s book for the Superintendent’s Book Club is Excellence through Equity: Five Principles of Courageous Leadership to Guide Achievement for Every Student. This book is different from those that we have read in the past because each of the chapters is written by a different educator. Many of the chapters outline how district, community, and/or school leaders made a change to their practice to ensure that each student is able to grow and succeed. It discusses making education equitable, which does not mean simply treating all students the same.
Once again this year, our meetings will be held at the Alcorn Library. We will meet from 3:45-5:00. Our meeting dates are: January 18, 2017; February 15, 2017; March 15, 2017; and April 5, 2017. An agenda of topics for our meetings will be sent out later this fall. Once you have registered for the sessions, a copy of the book will be sent to you through interoffice mail.
