PK-16 mathematics education leaders, teams and individuals


Bold leadership in mathematics education leads to all students engaging in equitable, high-quality learning experiences. During the summer leadership academy, participants will examine the structures, actions, and mindsets necessary to lead effective and equitable mathematics programs. Each day, we will structure our collective learning around the following essential questions.

  • Day 1 Focus: Framework for Leadership/Instructional Leadership

Essential Question: How do we structure our work as bold mathematics leaders to lead effective, equitable mathematics programs?

  • Day 2 Focus: Culturally Relevant Leadership

Essential Question: What actions can we take as culturally relevant leaders to support all students learning mathematics at high levels?

  • Day 3 Focus: Coaching

Essential Question: What actions can we take as culturally relevant leaders to support all students learning mathematics at high levels?

Registration includes the following resources:

  • NCSM Essential Actions: Framework for Leadership in Mathematics Education
  • A resource packet of the materials for the three days of learning

Join us as an individual or bring your team to expand your professional learning network while working virtually using the wealth of materials provided to develop a strategic plan personalized to your vision for math instruction and coaching. Mathematics leaders will leave equipped to create a shared vision for mathematics instruction, implement high-leverage teaching strategies, develop coaching structures, and monitor student learning for ALL students through an equity lens. If you are a teacher leader, coach, department chair, administrator or supervisor you won’t want to miss out on these three days of learning!
