SOAR AWARDS AND MEMBERSHIP RECEPTION

It’s important for educators to gather to be recognized for progress, explore highly effective practices, share what really moves the needle, and communicate lessons learned to elevate the performance of all. This annual event is designed for building-level leaders and district-level staff.



    
BFK ACADEMIES

Take your leadership skills to the next level by participating in one of three BFK Academies. Designed to help you discover and reflect on your personal leadership style while developing a plan for continued growth, each academy begins with a kick-off session followed by three ½ day sessions that take place during the afternoon of the SOAR LLC Workshops. This schedule allows you to minimize your time away from your districts while maximizing opportunities to attend meaningful, job-embedded professional learning. There is no district limit per Academy; however, each Academy has capped registration to ensure a high quality learning experience for participants.
