Focus of the agenda will be how school leaders can develop and utilize creativity in education management, operations, curriculum and leadership goals.

The second day (April 7) will allow participants to select from multiple discussion/work sessions focusing on concepts presented by Dr. Burkus and facilitated by school leaders who have demonstrated success in creative thinking and leadership in schools across the commonwealth.
