KRA members are invited to form small book-study groups within their individual schools/districts to read and implement the ideas presented in the book. All participants must be KRA members and register their group during the fall of the 2016-2017 school year. The study will officially begin on November 7, 2016.

STUDY GUIDES: Study guides will be provided for each group to complete and submit throughout the study. Groups will set their own meeting schedules to cover the study guides throughout the 2016-2017 school year. Each group will be required to keep a log of their meeting time and submit verification forms. These will be sent to group leaders and are to be emailed back to Susan each time the group meets.
