Higgins Lake Principals’ Conference

August 3, 2020 - August 5, 2020
Roscommon, MI

We are looking forward to gathering (now more than ever) at Higgins Lake on August 3-5, 2020 for our annual Principals’ Conference. There may be fewer handshakes and hugs, but being together as school leaders for fellowship, professional growth, and collaboration will be a tremendous blessing. I can’t wait for Ted Neitzke to dazzle us again this year and fill us with all sorts of new tools to attack the beginning of the 2020/2021 school year, which may prove to be quite different from what we’ve experienced in the past!

We will be talking about How to create a culture of improvement. This training series will share the seven principles of continuous improvement. Participants will leave with tools to support improvement as well as a greater understanding of how to lead and implement change. The skills acquired will be directly applicable to systems, schools, and classrooms.
