This year’s symposium will start with updates from Ennis Britton where attendees will learn strategies needed to arrive at the table ready to bargain as a team, understand the interpersonal dynamics and actual cost impacts of bargaining and to know the process when bargaining does not result in agreement at the table.  Following lunch, we will spend the afternoon with the Impact Group on strategic planning where attendees will learn the practical steps in the development of a strategic plan, how to identify key priorities for your district regarding intentional communications, and how to create, maintain and protect your school district’s brand.

Strategic Planning

Every great district knows where they’re going and how they’re going to get there. They have a plan. Do you?
In this session, attendees will learn the practical steps in the development of a strategic plan, how to identify key priorities for your district regarding intentional communications, and how to create, maintain and protect your school district's brand. 
Great school districts don’t just happen by accident. School districts must always be strategic, purposeful, and deliberate in their work. Ways to do that can include:
- Strategic  planning
- Strategic communications
- Strategic growth and protection of your brand, including during a crisis
