Education news, tips, & resources for March

Welcome to the March 2022 edition of Learning and Leading.

This month we are focusing on school leadership. There has never been a more challenging time to be a school leader than the past two years of balancing the demands of health and safety, technology access, and student and staff well-being, all while maintaining student learning and achievement.

We are pleased to highlight new resources as well as a sneak peek at upcoming events and PD to support your role as a school leader. We are also thrilled to announce our first in-person event in more than two years and our first-ever Student Agency Institute. We hope to see you in Montreal on October 24–26.
