During the keynote presentation Karen Power, Leadership Consultant with The Learning Bar will be asking participants to consider the factors that lead to a healthy culture, exploring how an environment of trust focused on clarity of tight expectations and ongoing commitments impacts people within the system. Leaders will leave this session with “take away” strategies to intentionally focus on developing and maintaining a healthy culture.

We are excited to have our host Lori Meyer, Associate Superintendent of Learning, Rocky View Schools (RVS) discuss a unique central office initiative put in place at the RVS.

Panel Discussion: Rebuilding Relationships

Leaders from CBE, Tsuut’ina Nation Board of Education (Treaty 7), RVS, Pembina Hills School Division, and Frontier School Division will discuss how school closures, online learning, and staff turnover have disrupted important relationships in the school system.
