July 6-8, 2022
This three-day event, held July 6–8, will offer instructional leaders, coaches, curriculum specialists, and teacher-leaders the tools for initiating and sustaining a successful implementation of Bridges® in Mathematics.
This year’s Summer Leadership Institute takes place at the Marriott Midway in Chicago, IL. The event will feature powerful keynotes, engaging interactive sessions, and a participant-driven “unconference” where attendees have the opportunity to select topics and engage directly with one another. The cost is $650 per attendee.
More information is available here. Participation is limited, and we expect this event to fill up fast! There will be no on-site registration.
The Math Learning Center is committed to the health and safety of conference participants, staff, and event partners joining us in person. We fully recognize the need to offer the safest experience possible for all. For those joining us in person, we will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination, which will be gathered by a third-party service called Crowd Pass. Your private health information will not be seen or accessible to anyone affiliated with MLC.
We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic closely to implement appropriate precautions and protocols at the time of the conference to minimize the risk of spreading or contracting COVID-19. As such, in-person institute participants must comply with precautionary measures set in place at the time of the institute.
If you cannot participate with us in-person at this time, consider our Virtual Summer Leadership Institute.
