HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 16, 2013 – Two students in the doctoral program in Educational Leadership at High Point University have been selected to present posters at the upcoming 2013 North Carolina Association of School Administrators (NCASA) Conference on Educational Leadership. The conference will be held on March 20-21 in Raleigh.
Shelley Bryant, assistant principal at North Surry High School, and Heather Horton, assistant principal at Meadowview Middle School, will present “Banded Through 21st Century Leadership,” which details a new learning system implemented in Surry County Schools.
The new system, “Haiku Learning Management System,” provides new initiatives to influence teachers to create a collaborative 21st century learning environment that helps improve instruction, communication with students and parents, as well as increased instructional leadership of district and school level administration.
Both Bryant and Horton will share the implementation plan that began with seventh-grade students, and now spans to sixth- to 12th-grade students. “The plan goes beyond the technical side, and bands curriculum and instruction across the district for shared planning, assessment analysis, instructional leadership and effective management,” says Bryant.
The NCASA, established in 1976, helps to ensure quality learning experiences for all students through visionary and effective leadership. The group provides professional development, financial services, communication, legal counsel and lobbying services.
