DESPERATELY SEEKING long term relationships with like-minded, passionate schools determined to maintain the common principles as the core foundations of their communities. Must be interested in ongoing conversations, school visitations, sharing best practices and developing transformational leadership with equity as a lens.
How do we keep the CES Common Principles at the heart of our work long-term, especially given the coming changes with CES National? From our perspectives as past and current leaders of Crater Renaissance Academy of Arts and Sciences in Central Point, Oregon, we will bring to the discussion our own experiences of how implementing the CES Common Principles with fidelity allowed us to weather the greatest challenges we have faced as a school. Networking and discussing this topic will allow all schools to add to their practices. Conversation around this topic assures that with or without guidance from other Coalition schools, a site can make decisions based on research and practice which best ensure students will, for example, learn to use their minds well, and teachers and systems will, for example, show commitment to the entire school. We seek partners in this work.
