Adaptive Schools

LVUSD is proud to be authorized to provide the Adaptive Schools Foundation

training to a limited number of out-of-district participants. 

The Adaptive Schools Foundation Seminars take participants beyond the idea of

professional learning communities to the actual implementation, describing

specific ways to weave the collaborative fabric of a faculty, develop group member

skills, and acquire the principles and understandings to engage in a continuous cycle of team and individual improvement. Adaptive Schools is the “how” of professional learning communities: how to behave in groups, how to lead them, and how to facilitate them for improved leading, teaching, and learning.


In the four-day Adaptive Schools Foundation Seminar, participants will develop:

  • An increased capacity to initiate, develop and sustain high functioning groups

  • New lenses for diagnosing the stages and phases of group development

  • An expanded repertoire of practical facilitation tools

  • Understandings of when and how to engage groups in dialogue and discussion, the limitations, forms and values of each

  • Skills to move groups beyond consensus to common focus

  • Ways to value and use dissension, argument and conflict

  • Strategies for keeping group members on track, on topic, and energized.
