“Dr. David Sever helped Franklin Community Schools move from 'Good to Great'. His knowledge, passion, and focus anchored two outstanding retreat days in our district. Day one was focused on getting our School Board to declare the major areas of focus (their passions) for our district. Day two was used to guide the K -12 administrative team, teachers, and key stakeholders into building the scaffolding need to grow our passions. He intertwined stories, books, movies, and activities to facilitate both days. The days were fun, engaging, and provided our district with outstanding professional development. Our district took definite strides towards becoming a ‘great’ district because of Dr. Sever’s work, and the beneficiaries of these two days will be our students.”
