Come join us for WASA’s Fall Conference as Dr. Tammy Campbell facilitates a variety of learning opportunities that will focus on Student Voice as a Lever for Excellence and Continuous Improvement. Through content and student and district panels, Dr. Campbell will moderate how school systems can build processes and procedures for incorporating student voice in leading district work. 

Now, more than ever, education leaders must take the lead in outlining and executing leadership approaches that center student outcomes and equity at the core of everything they do. Leadership and equity are one and the same. This work is not an event, rather a MINDSET and a way of being that must be a focus all year over multiple years.
