The Wallace Foundation is a national philanthropy that seeks to improve learning and enrichment for disadvantaged children and foster the vitality of the arts for everyone. The foundation has an unusual approach: funding projects to test innovative ideas for solving important social problems, conducting research to find out what works and what doesn’t and to fill key knowledge gaps – and then communicating the results to help others.

Whether conducting teacher evaluations or improving the culture of schools, whether in urban settings or rural schools, principals are accountable for reaching the highest potential of every teacher and student. Participants will hear from effective principals and also share how they have employed these practices described in the Wallace Foundation report, The School Principal as Leader through rural, urban, and suburban break-out groups.
