Curriculum Leaders’ Network

The CIS Ontario Curriculum Leaders' Network connects academic leaders responsible for overseeing curriculum and staying abreast of Ministry of Education requirements. This Network gathers in-person, two to three times a year, at a host school where curriculum leaders enjoy engaging days of learning, collaboration and collegiality. Curriculum leaders are also invited to join our Instructional Coaching Community of Practice community.

Curriculum Leaders have access to a member's only Curriculum Leaders' Network Hub within CISO Connect, our member community platform.
