Executive District LeaderS' Roundtable
Any central office administrator below the rank of superintendent (e.g., deputy, assistant, or associate superintendent; district director, etc.) who is a member of CAPSS is eligible to be a member of the Roundtable. Roundtable activities are geared to district-wide administrators with responsibilities in curriculum, instruction, and supervision/ evaluation practices. The Roundtable’s Program Leadership Committee plans the themes and agendas for several meetings throughout the year.

We will have a light breakfast from 8:30 to 9:00 and the program will begin at 9:00. Members may bring 1-2 guests.
Jennifer Frentress, an Associate of School by Design, will share her expertise in assisting districts to design solutions for whatever their pressure points are and using the resources they have at hand do to it. She has assisted districts to analyze the lived experience of students (especially the master schedule) and to measure the gap between their Portrait of the Graduate they aspire to and the one they have currently.
The January 18th session will feature NEASC presentations and members will also be able to bring 1-2 guests. Registration for the January session will be under a separate email in December.

Topic: Portrait of the Graduate. Fran Rabinowitz, Executive Director of CAPSS, will share her thoughts on why this work is so important and how the Portrait aligns and drives the work throughout a school district. We will also hear presentations from districts at various stages of implementation of their Portraits and finally, we will have an opportunity to assess our own districts and discuss how the Roundtable can help support this work.
