Leaders to Watch Summit
November 4-5, 2022, North Lake Tahoe

Education Leaders! Choose your path…

The 2022 Leaders to Watch (LTW) Summit offers site and district leaders the chance to engage in deeper learning around timely education and leadership issues—away from the constant decisions of professional daily life. Choose from a mix of general sessions, coaching sessions, focus sessions, and dedicated reflective/collaborative time.
An Educator-Made Program
Combining lessons learned from CLS’ successful leadership grant-funded programs with the evidence-based criteria of the national 600-school strong Schools to Watch program, Leaders to Watch is a real-world, capacity-building leadership program that helps you reach YOUR goals for your school and yourself.


Learn from experts in SEL, developmental responsiveness, social equity, funding, family & community, staff leadership, and more.


Four education leaders will be there to meet with you and your colleagues in small groups to help you plan your personal leadership goals.
