From Old School to Bold School

Kick off the school year with Will Richardson

Register now!

Start your school year with Will Richardson on Aug. 18 in Emmetsburg.


This session will discuss the paths that a number of “bold schools” are taking to fundamentally redefine their value as places of learning, not of content and teachers. We’ll discuss the challenges of remaining an “old” school, define the main characteristics of “bold” schools, look at schools that are already bridging the gap, and suggest ways to begin relevant, “bold” conversations around real change in our own schools and communities.


Registration fee is $75 per person, and lunch is included. Registration deadline is Aug. 3.
