Behind every thriving school... is a team of lay and professional leaders who are on the same page.
Behind every team of lay and professional leaders who are on the same page... is a foundation of trust.
Behind every foundation of trust... is an investment and commitment to learning how to make it so.
Prizmah and DSLTI (Day School Leadership Training Institute) are honored to host the 2018 Lay Leader Institute. This one-of-a-kind event provides lay leaders with the high quality professional development that is typically reserved for school leaders. We believe that both lay and professional roles are of equal importance and warrant an equal investment in their growth. And that is exactly what this convening will deliver! We will take all the ingredients responsible for a school's overall success (strong board/HOS relationships, productive partnerships between board members, open and collaborative communication, and most of all, trust) and work with teams of lay and professional leaders to build the kind of foundation that will make thinking strategically easier and more synchronized.
We will achieve this tall order by:
  • Developing a common language that will strengthen the board/head partnership
  • Identifying practical tools that will help boards achieve more in less time
  • Building networks that extend across North America. After all, we aren't meant to lead alone. Join a community of colleagues to lead and learn with long after the event ends

This event is for school teams of  professional and lay leaders and will be facilitated by experts from DSLTI and Prizmah, including Dr. Ray Levi, Rabbi Larry Scheindlin, Jane Taubenfeld Cohen, and Ilisa Cappell.
