Leadership & Learning Center - Expo Sponsor

 

Leadership and Learning CenterAt The Leadership and Learning Center, a division of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, we ask ourselves daily, "What do students need, what do teachers need, and what do school leaders need?" In doing so, we have developed research-based solutions to respond to those needs.

Our sustainable approach to improving student achievement and school transformation is designed to help every district and school succeed. Our ability to understand the big picture, and get down to deep implementation on-site in your school or district, is the cornerstone of our world class professional development and services.

The Center's ground-breaking work in 90/90/90 Schools™ across the country (90% poverty, 90% minority, and 90% of students meeting or exceeding standards) identified essential practices that create positive associations between educational performance and sustained educational excellence. The Center's international thought-leaders and suite of services help schools implement these practices through four key professional development areas (see diagram below). Each area of practice includes professional development services, industry-recognized resources published by Lead+Learn Press, seminars and institutes, support through coaching, monitoring and on-site implementation, and certification of school district staff to ensure an integrated solution which meets student, teacher, and school leader needs. This model allows the work to go significantly beyond an initial seminar experience to deep implementation, resulting in sustainable success.

Thank you, Dr. Douglas Reeves, and the Leadership and Learning Center, for donating $7,500 to Fisher House Foundation as the Team Fisher House Expo Sponsor.

Fundraising Incentive Prize Rules & Regs: 

Fisher House Foundation is offering great prizes for the top forty fundraisers at the Marine Corps Marathon. 

The prize winners will be determined by the totals displayed on the Team Fisher House at the 2011 Marine Corps Marathon Campaign at 5pm EST on Monday, October 24, 2011. 

The top fundraisers will be ranked either by their individual total, or their team's fundraising average, whichever is greatest.  If a fundraiser who is part of a fundraising team wins a prize based on an individual total, the rest of the team will be ranked by their individual totals as well.

Prizes will be distributed at the pasta dinner at Key Bridge Marriott on 10/29/11.  If you are unable to attend the dinner, prizes will be shipped to your registration address.
There will be a VERY SPECIAL prize for the runners with the greatest number of donations, to reward his/her effort for raising the most awareness for Fisher House Foundation.
