Our next Northeast TURN conference is scheduled for March 23-24, 2018 at Microsoft Boston Technology Center, 5 Wayside Road, Burlington, MA 01803. Our focus will be Strengthening Collaborative Partnerships for Student Success: Ensuring Equity and Excellence. We will continue to collaboratively examine policies, programs and practices that both support and challenge the social, emotional and academic learning needs of all students. We will also continue to use Michael Fullan’s Coherence Framework as a guide to assist our teams in their efforts to establish shared goals and accountability as well as building capacity to deepen student learning through pedagogical practices. Our agenda will feature local, state and national examples of promising practices and policies that focus on this joint work.

Our NE TURN teams represent union & teacher leaders, school & district administrators and board members who are working jointly to plan and implement teacher evaluation systems and college and career ready standards to improve teaching and learning. We continue to encourage and support our NE TURN teams to jointly develop, implement and share their efforts. Additionally, we will work with teams to develop action plans in order to facilitate the work in our school communities.

Our NE TURN locals are encouraged to invite representatives from their district and school administration, boards of education and community leaders to join their teams for this two-day forum. Our conference will begin at 9:00 am on Friday, March 23 and will conclude by 12:00 pm on Saturday, March 24.
