Administrator Network

The CREA Administrative Network provides an opportunity for structured collaboration around a common problem of practice identified prior to the start of the annual network series, frequent collegial conversation focused on improvement, and exploration of a common resource for administrators.  Network members will engage in common learning, observe classrooms and debrief their findings during each session.
