Learning Network

The Learning Network is an effective leadership development program that supports leadership teams to improve overall school achievement and to close achievement gaps through targeted improvement of learning and teaching.

Schools are encouraged to particpipate in the Learning Network, as it fulfills part of their academic grant requirements.  We are asking that leadership teams include the principal and two additional team members.
