Workshops & Trainings

At UE101, we believe that teacher quality is vital to the success of schools in general. However, when it comes to urban underserved schools, we view teacher quality as just one component within a series of factors on the road to student success.

 

UE101 is a whole-staff process. We assist schools in the building of an Urban School Structure Plan (USSP) that is tailored to their specific needs. Program phases include design, training, implementation, and assessment. Our process focuses on your school’s relationships and resources for a full maximization of its climate and culture.
