Cohort Program veterans are Kealaʻula members for life. What that means is that the learning doesnʻt stop at the end of the first year. In order to combat the challenge of sustainability with professional development the Institute continues to work with members on transformational projects in post-cohort years by providing thought partnership, resources, additional research + development, networking, and by partnering with campus leaders to help fan the flames started by Kealaʻula educators.
It is our work with school leaders that helps those who participate in Kealaʻula create lasting change in their schools. In this "viral" strategic approach to school transformation, we empower teachers, support them over time, and work with their leaders to help leverage the gains made by individual collaboraotrs. Using the power of Kumu.ioʻs systems mapping platform (stills of some of our campus impact maps can be seen to the left) Kealaʻula helps educators at both the front line teacher level and administrative level work together to facilitate ongoing school improvement.
