Brunch & Learn Leadership Webinars

Are you looking for a great way to connect and collaborate with other school leaders? CCOSA is launching a monthly Webinar series so that you can learn and grow with others from the convenience of your own office computer or mobile device. Join William D. Parker, Skiatook High School Principal, who will host these monthly virtual meet-ups.

Each episode is 45-60 minutes with 15-20 minutes of slides on the front-end followed by another 20+ minutes of time for everyone to add their own thoughts, ask questions, and share ideas.  

Participants who attend all 8 sessions will be recognized later in the year
