Improve Your School Effectiveness with AISA
In order to maximize student learning and to promote professional growth for staff in AISA schools, it is essential that the school functions in an effective manner, providing a stable and supportive environment, and a sound and viable school organization that ensures sustainability in the years ahead – even through the frequent changes in leadership that tend to characterize AISA schools.
AISA has developed the AISA School Effectiveness Framework (SEF) is to establish a common understanding of school effectiveness in the AISA region and to suggest good practices, structures and resources that will support learning in AISA schools. A key component of school effectiveness is how a school defines learning and builds a coherent curriculum aligned with the guiding statements of the school to ensure mission integrity. When all components of school decision making and procedures connect back to student learning we build a stronger evidence based learning culture.

AISA School Effectiveness Learning Events
Throughout every school year, AISA provides a number of learning opportunities for school leaders and Boards to strengthen their knowledge and understanding of school effectiveness.
For our 3rd Annual School Heads Retreat, we’ve designed something special. With the input of our new Leadership PL Advisory group (all school leaders themselves), we have devised the 2018 SHR programme to have less directed input and more opportunity for Heads of schools to learn from each other, to network, and to share and reflect on your own expertise in a facilitated and productive way.
The AISA SHR is exclusively for the Head of School. Please do not register any other team members for this event.
