Vision Teams Gather
for Increased Impact!

This past April, Vision Teams from schools around the midwest gathered in Lee's Summit for a workshop. They worked collaboratively and discussed ideas around this year's theme: Vulnerability to Accountability to Ownership to Impact.

The Vision Teams had the opportunity to work on their school's vision for the future, network with fellow educators, and learn from other Vision Teams.
