Upcoming ALA Reach Events
Professional Learning Network
Spark! is a virtual professional learning network designed to foster conversation and share best practices about trending school issues and challenges. Each session focuses on a specific issue through a case study and short didactic, or mini-lesson, and conversations guided by Arkansas educational leaders. Synchronous sessions are offered on the first and third Wednesdays of the month resuming September 20, 2023.
ALA Reach values engagement. We encourage teachers, teacher leaders, aspiring leaders, and administrators to submit a case study or problem of practice they would like addressed in an upcoming Spark! session. Click here to submit a case study or problem of practice. If you are interested in presenting a brief presentation on an educational topic, please contact the Reach coordinator by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
ALA Reach supports Arkansas Leadership Academy’s three focus areas of Collaborative Leadership, Collective Efficacy, and Cultural Competence to enhance student-focused education, continual school improvement, and educational equity and excellence for all Arkansas students.
ALA Reach provides free professional learning for current Arkansas education leaders and aspiring leaders. All Arkansas educators and policymakers are invited to use ALA Reach opportunities and resources. There is no application process for ALA Reach. However, online event registration is required for participation. View the Reach Calendar and the On-Demand page to register for upcoming and previously recorded ALA Reach events.
