School Sustainability Seminars

Over 20 schools were represented at the January School Sustainability Seminar. The seminar on the topic of school sustainability and the future of schools gave insight and directions to consider moving forward in planning for the future. The presentation was done by Dr. Kevin Brockberg (LCMS-Indiana District Education Executive).

Kevin Brockberg Biography

Why attend?

As school leaders, we must ask ourselves about our school’s viability or we will put our schools at risk. School sustainability and viability into the future is the responsibility of all stake holders – administration, Boards, faculty, families.
