NLSA Best Practices Webinars

The National Lutheran School Accreditation commission annually recognizes schools which demonstrate innovative leadership through the implementation of best practices related to the academic quality and spiritual development of its students.  During the school year, each school with a recognized Powerful Practice will prepare a print article and present webinars that are open to participation for all Lutheran schools as these Powerful Practices provides opportunities and ideas that have the potential to improve all schools.

Webinar Information
