Come and intensively study and integrate leadership actions into your plan to address the major issues of equity and assessment that face leaders today.

The NCSM Leadership academy has increased my enthusiasm and desire to ensure all our kids are achieving more. and to recognize the inequities that exist in our department. I loved the interactive things we did and met some great people.

- Senior High School teacher

I loved learning how to utilize strategies in math that I have previously used in literacy. It was good to see your emphasis on equity and Special education children.

- Elementary School teacher

I really liked all of your research based references and the design f the action plans. your interactive presentation model is one I can use next year.

- District/County Leader

The assessment portion of the academy has created a vision of what I must do back in my school with my colleagues.

- Senior High School math teacher

Excellent Academy. The breakouts were outstanding. Variance of test rigor caused by lack of common assessments has me thinking differently about what I teach.
