The Project MAX Administrative Professional Learning (PLC) Communities have supported administrators (LEA and IU Directors/Supervisors of Special Education, Superintendents, Principals, Assistant Principals, Curriculum Directors, etc.) who have participated in the federal grant across all four cohorts. The MAX Administrative PLC assisted administrators to focus on:

• Day 1: Cultivating Change
• Day 2: Data-Driven Processes
• Day 3: Scaling Up

In order to implement systems change, the work of future MAX leaders must be a balance between effective framework implementation (the skill) and the collective will (sustainable leadership) as this is what has been shown to work in research. Because of this, PaTTAN is providing administrators with the resources and materials needed to assist them and lead their schools in cultivating systems change through implementation of the principles of Project MAX. Feel free to utilize these resources to support individual leaders or to form your own Administrative PLC.
