Toolbox banner

The Tool Box is a series of professional development sessions, led by local school or community experts, that helps practitioners reach a level of understanding of a particular skill or knowledge-base. The goal is for immediate, hands-on practical use of the strategies used by peers with the understanding of benefits challenges, and pitfalls of making changes to benefit education and students.

The Tool Box series provides learners with a chance to network with other administrators, share ideas, learn practical and effective approaches to problems and valuable problem solving skills.
