INSHAPE Hosts "Super Inspire"

An invitation-only symposium for Superintendents

The inaugural Symposium for Superintendents - Health. Moves. Minds. - is an invitation-only event designed for school superintendents who desire to improve the efficacy of K-12 education by unleashing the power of a "whole child" approach. It will be held in Indianapolis on February 22, 2019.
 
Driven by strong support from stakeholders across the state, there is a long-term goal to utilize a climate and culture assessment when evaluating schools. Any discussion of school culture and climate must include a concern for the "whole child" which includes mental, physical, and emotional health. We know these concerns by many names: behavior issues, bullying, chronic illness, stress, absenteeism, substance abuse, violence, safety, obesity, suicide, etc.
 
Here's your super power.   Any INSHAPE member can invite their school district Superintendent to this exclusive, no-cost event (sample invitation). Click below to get your Superintendent's invitation.
