Spring 2016 Regional Convenings

Overview

In April and May 2016, the CA LMI held five regional convenings across the state (see flyer below for details) intended for district and county office teams that attended one of the CA LMI’s 2015 events. At these meetings, district and county office of education teams focused on exploring the topics and skills that received the most interest from respondents to the January 2016 CA LMI survey in each region. In total, 39 districts and 3 county offices of education attended one of the convenings.

Selected Participant Comments

I very much valued the opportunity to work with our union presidents outside of the typical union/management roles. It opened up the possibility for different ways to collaborate with one another.

Overall, it was a good day. Bringing folks together with the same objective of building a collaborative culture and having time to share challenges and successes was great. Learning about new models and frameworks for understanding the transformational work was also beneficial.

Our team has met twice since the regional meeting and are definitely interested in more coaching. We are also interested in a [regional] collaborative. Additionally, we are interested in continuing with the CA LMI. Please let us know when the next meeting is scheduled.

– 4/21, Sacramento Convening

[What I liked most about the meeting was] collaboration time with team members – around a common message from presenters.

– 5/6, Pasadena Convening

The coaching time was the most productive part of the day for me. It led to some concrete ideas and possibilities for working together in the future.

– 5/12, Orange County Convening

These meetings have fully encouraged our collaboration. What has been really valuable is hearing other people’s struggles, especially for roles that we can identify with. If we can listen to teachers union presidents or classified- we might be able to see ourselves in those people.
