Communities of Practice

The 21CSLA Communities of Practice are groups of educational leaders who share a passion for something they do and share a desire to learn how to do it better as they interact on a regular basis. Using continuous improvement principles, communities will interact regularly to focus on shared/individualized problems of practice to learn new and better ways to accomplish their personal, professional, and organizational goals.
