Register now for free adolescent literacy regional meetings

Plan to attend one of several upcoming regional meetings, Adolescent Literacy: Leading with Literacy. The events will feature Dr. Mel Riddile, former Met Life/NASSP National High School Principal of the Year and the Virginia High School Principal of the Year. Dr. Riddile will discuss the importance of using a literacy-embedded instructional framework to raise student achievement. Participants will explore using this framework to reduce the variation in teaching quality by setting a clear set of expectations for all teachers.
