Resources You Need to Lead

Administrators, teachers, and parents are called to lead at this moment.

Possip gives you the resources – downloadable templates and a complete line of Professional Development – so you can lead.


For Teachers

Planning for Distance Learning

After a stressful distance learning roll-out in the spring, teachers and leaders alike are ready to make the Fall’s Distance Learning 2.0 far more successful.  Using proactive summer planning, this professional development session will guide you in creating your plan for the 2020-2021 school year.  We will combine insights from over 10,000 parents with the rich experiences of a principal, teacher, leader of a remote team of 200 staff members, and a product manager for a digital publisher.  These diverse perspectives combined with design thinking will help you plan a successful distance learning future for your students and families.

(1 hour) $50 virtual session/person or $500 for team of 10+

Executing Effective Distance Learning

This spring, we all saw that teaching in front of a classroom and teaching remotely are different. Many teachers still haven’t been trained on best practices, or at most received a last-minute crash course. Combining insights from over 10,000 parents with the experiences of a principal, teacher, and digital publisher, you will learn best practices for executing effective distance learning.

Making Diversity in Your Classroom a Strength

Racially and linguistically diverse classrooms have so much opportunity – and can also offer additional complexity. We will share insights, worries, and ideas from over 10,000 parents and utilize the rich experiences of a trained diversity facilitator, a principal and team of teachers to give you information about how you can make diversity in your classroom a strength.

For Leaders

Diverse and Equitable Systems

As schools and districts take this time to reflect on current practices and systems, this professional development session is designed to help you identify areas of inequity, opportunities to strengthen diversity and to create ongoing systems to support diversity and equity. You will access the insights and needs from the diverse parents Possip hears from, and learn how you can go from listening to implementing equitable systems.

(2 hours) $100 virtual session/person or $1000 for team of 10+

Maximizing Parent Training for Your Wins

Leaders should be striving to have loyal, dedicated, parent partners, and advocates. We call these parents Champions, by your side and supporting the work you and your school do every day. Champions are active advocates in the school community who strengthen positive parent culture, support you and your campus initiatives, and can step up to help lead parent initiatives. This professional development session will help you give parents voice and equip them to become Champions of your school through intentional parent training.

Principal Reopening Retreat  

Having a strong reopening plan is crucial to provide safety for your students, staff, and families. At Possip, we know many parents have varying views on what should happen in the fall, and general “blueprints” and “roadmaps” lack specific details. This session will take insights from over 10,000 parents with the rich experiences of a principal, teacher, leader of a remote team of 200 staff members to help you plan your systems and structures for school reopening virtually. Topics include remote teacher development systems, student accountability and culture systems, and distance parent engagement and communication strategies.
