SPN hosts at least one webinar a month for network members. Similar to the podcasts, the topics are selected based on member questions, the monthly focus topic of the newsletter, or a particularly timely issue relevant to SPN members. These webinars are presented by member school leaders, education consultants, researchers and field experts. All webinars include opportunities for the participants to dialog with the presenter and have their questions answered. Recent topics include: Leadership Strategies for Connecting to the Community; Using Perception Data as Part of School Improvement Planning; Strategic Planning for the Common Core State Standards. Webinars are supported by research articles accessed under “Research” and “Technical Bulletins.” Webinars are used by schools to learn about program issues and concerns as well as information about how to best utilize existing resources to improve student growth. Participation on past webinars varies from 50-500 participants.
