These 18 educators completed a highly reflective application, a team of educators visited their classrooms, and they participated in an interview. Moving into 2015-16, these educators will pilot shared leadership opportunities to support student growth. A group of CODE inductees will also form the first CODE Advisory Council. The council will meet regularly to engage in conversations with each other about our school district. They will also meet with district leaders to ask critical questions, create shared understanding, and talk about how to improve student learning.

The 2015-16 CODE nomination window will open in September 2015 with work sessions is November through January, visitations in February, and interviews and induction in March 2016.
