The 2023-24 school year is under way and our focus is on classrooms where kids are engaged, teachers are excited, and leaders are energized!

The virtual lead4wardpalooza provides educators with options to get exactly what they need this fall! Instead of offering a conference around one theme, this year’s conference will have many options. This format allows you to choose a little of this and a little of that to meet the needs of your own professional learning. We’re offering topics you’ve been asking for in bite-sized pieces in a virtual format. So, hit the pause button for a day (or two) and come learn with us!

Participants can sign up for one, two, three, or four 3-hour sessions:

  • One 3-hour session $175
  • Two 3-hour sessions $300 [$50 savings]
  • Three 3-hour sessions $450 [$75 savings]
  • Four 3-hour sessions $600 [$100 savings]

Topics include:

* These topics highlight content from our full 6-hour sessions that can be brought to your district. For a complete list, visit
