In response to overwhelming feedback from school leaders to have more opportunities to connect and learn from each other, NYCSA launched Critical Friends visits, an opportunity for charter leaders to visit each other’s schools, give each other feedback and learn from each other in 2019.  We are now taking this initiative online to allow school leaders to meet with one another virtually!

If you are interested in participating in a Critical Friends session in order to support another school leader to address a problem with which they are struggling, you will have the opportunity in early January to sign up for a session based on topic and timing.
