Teachers standing around a poster reading "Standards Institute", " Welcome to the Summer Standards Institute"

A team of 24 LPS educators including Principals, Assistant Principals, Deans and Teachers traveled to San Diego to complete UnboundEd's 2018 Summer Standards Institute (SI). SI is a unique and transformative five-day professional development experience that encourages greater understanding of the research behind the standards, and also delivers the practical, day-to-day strategies that can improve instructional practice and leadership in schools. Learning is grounded in conversations about the roles that race, bias and prejudice play in our schools and classrooms. Congratulations to these educators who are committed to building, improving, and sustaining equitable instructional excellence in ELA, math and leadership.
