Networks

One of the critical ways in which our agency promotes positive educational change is by leveraging the power of our educator networks. These networks are established to respond to the needs and interests of the educators in the field and also as a means by which we, as professionals anticipating new growth opportunities in Jewish education, can move our educators to work differently where necessary and provide excellent value to learners. This year, we are leading or facilitating 49 networks across all of our key content areas.. In total, over 200 day schools participate in one or more of these professional networks.

  • General Studies’ Principals Council Network. Contact Judy Oppenheim

  • Yeshiva Councils Network. Contact Sara Seligson

  • Day School Development Directors Network

  • Visit our Network section to learn more about all of the networks we offer and to sign up for them.

 



Adaptive Leadership

In the summer of 2016, 19 leaders and lead teachers from 17 day schools participated in an institute  introducing them to the theories of Adaptive and Reflective Leadership. The theory and practice behind these research-based approaches can be learned and implemented in a complementary way to provide transformative outcomes for leadership in practice. These practices can also support the use of Design Thinking, a process used to solve complex problems where the results meet the specific needs of the end user.
