ACS WASC will conduct a one day pre-CEESA Conference session on March 19, 2020, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Scandic Grand Marina, Helsinki. This session will be interactive as we examine the essentials of the Focus on Learning self-study process and the many ways it can be adapted to a school’s situation.
This session is free of charge but admitted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The purpose will be to ground participants in the Focus on Learning process and the basic principles/standards of accreditation and explain what can be done for an ACS WASC only accreditation and the joint CIS/WASC protocol.

Our day-to-day jobs are all-consuming and can leave little opportunity to reflect and learn from colleagues with similar responsibilities. The Elementary Principals Job-Alike is designed as an opportunity for principals to learn with and from each other about practical aspects of our work with teachers, students, and families.
Topics of particular interest this year include: Reggio-inspired Learning, Alternative Scheduling Options for Elementary Schools, and Feedback to Support Learning. The goal of this time together is to learn about what other CEESA schools are doing in these areas, as well as explore other topics related to the future of learning and ways in which we are supporting learning that engages and challenges everyone in our communities.
Intended Audience: PK – G5 Elementary Principals
