Base Camp and Leadership Summit is a team-based learning experience that brings teachers, school leaders, and central office leaders together to address their most pressing school improvement challenges. Because leadership is a collaborative endeavor, we help leaders function more effectively within the real-life teams in which they work.  Base Camp and Leadership Summit breaks down silos and unites teachers and leaders around a shared plan for school improvement.

Your Team
Your team will benefit from the expertise of a side-by-side Performance Consultant, who will work with you before, during, and after BCLS to help you achieve your school improvement goals. The mountain provides the perfect atmosphere for deep connection and honest conversation with colleagues from your school, your district, and from across the state.  You’ll leave with a clear path forward and a plan that focuses on changes in adult behavior that lead to better outcomes for students.
Your Time
Your time will be fully devoted to learning a process for school improvement and working with your team to apply that process to your own, unique challenges. Along with team performance time, the Base Camp and Leadership Summit experience also includes individual breakout sessions, so each member of your team can devote their time to areas where they would personally like to grow.
Your Data
Your data is applied throughout the experience, making Base Camp and Leadership Summit a truly customized experience. Our performance coaches leverage your CCRPI data, Georgia Milestones, High School Feedback Reports, and much more to ensure that your entire team—from the classroom to central office—is able to identify areas for improvement and is committed to implementing a plan for growth.
