LMCS hosts Solution Tree Wired Event
Lake Mills Community School hosted a Solution Tree Wired Event last Thursday, Aug. 15, in the auditorium gymnasium. LMCS teachers and administrators participated in the event, along with staff from neighboring districts (Northwood, West Fork, St. Ansgar, Central Rivers AEA, etc.).
Since 1998, Solution Tree has worked to transform education worldwide by empowering educators to raise student achievement. With more than 42,984 educators attending professional learning events and more than 4,260 professional development days in schools each year, Solution Tree helps teachers and administrators confront essential challenges. Solution Tree has a catalog of more than 515 titles, hundreds of videos and online courses and is the creator of Global PD, an online tool that facilitates the work of professional learning communities.
All of the work this past school year has been based around the PLC concept, essential standards, common formative assessments, interventions, etc. Solution Tree offers conferences in Des Moines and Minneapolis, but by bringing the event to Lake Mills, all staff could hear the same message at the same time.
The event included streaming various Solution Tree speakers talking about assessments, collaboration, interventions, MTSS, and more. They also took time to reflect and make plans for the upcoming school year.
