Principals and teachers across Southeast Louisiana are going to ‘summer school’
School Leadership Center hosts intensive workshops to strengthen student achievement
This summer, principals and teachers from across Southeast Louisiana will be going to summer school.
This is not your typical “summer school”, but a golden opportunity for school leaders from Venice to Baton Rouge to strengthen their school’s student achievement by participating in one of the School Leadership Center’s (SLC) seven Summer Institutes (SI), said Founder and Executive Director Dr. Brian Riedlinger.
These intensive residential professional growth sessions for principals and teachers provide intense training regarding a participant’s school test scores and how to increase achievement in public, parochial, private and charter schools.
“In 2009, SPS scores in schools working with SLC improved at a 46 percent greater rate than schools without SLC support, so we know these programs work,” said Dr. Riedlinger.
“This year, each district or school selected a Scholarly Focus for instruction for their Summer Institute, ranging from Student Engagement to Effective Leadership. All sessions include SLC’s unique disaggregation of each school’s test scores and provide expertise for each school to improve their scores. These workshops provide an opportunity for SLC to work directly with school Leaders and Leadership Teams in many schools,” he said.
The Institutes will include purposeful team building activities and intensive academic sessions that will address important topics such as: “Successful teaching strategies”, “What a principal must know about school change and their culture” and “What is good teaching and how do principals best promote and monitor it?” All institutes are held at “retreat” locations so the participant learns in a relaxed setting.
Five of the Summer Institutes will be three-day trainings for district schools in their selected area: Advanced Baton Rouge (Student Engagement); Archdiocese of Baton Rouge (Differentiated Instruction), Recovery School District (High Poverty High Performing Schools); Boothville/Venice (Differentiated Instruction); and New Orleans Charter Science and Math High School (Response to Intervention).
The Institute for SLC Fellows selected in 2009 and 2010 will be held at Gulf Hills Resort in Ocean Springs, MS, focused on effective leadership. There will also be an Institute devoted to Special Education.
The dates are:
Date School District
May 26-28 Advanced Baton Rouge
June 20-25 Summer Institute for Fellows

July 12-15 Recovery School District
July 21-24 Special Ed Focus: Serving the Unique Needs of Students (SUNS)

Each retreat focuses on transformational and instructional leadership; changing school culture for increased achievement; recognizing, monitoring and rewarding good teaching; data-driven leadership; developing action plans to complete school improvement; and building an effective leadership team.
