Our May 2017 Denver conference is sold out. Join the waitlist below for information on future conferences. Thank you!

Please join us in Denver, CO on May 22-23, 2017 to learn more about Student-Centered Coaching, a model for coaching that maintains a laser-like focus on students, is driven by data, and is established within a culture of learning. By focusing coaching on student learning – rather than on fixing teachers – a coach can make a measurable impact on both student learning and teaching practice.

The conference will focus on: Core Practices for Student-Centered Coaching; Common Barriers to Success with Student-Centered Coaching; and, Dialogue and Discourse within Coaching Conversations. There will also be a panel discussion with coaches and leaders who are implementing Student-Centered Coaching in their own districts. (AGENDA)

New this year! Registration will include a copy of our newest book, Student-Centered Coaching: The Moves (Sweeney & Harris, 2016). This will provide a brand new collection of lessons from the field, tools, and practices. We will also offer afternoon concurrent sessions that will be hosted by guest presenters.
