Starting up a new school, partaking in a major project, or just beginning a new school year can bring many stress-inducing questions. Are you ready for unexpected challenges? Do you have enough time and resources to achieve goals? Do you have a long-term vision? Developing a strategy for the future takes some creative thinking and a deep understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of your school. According to a recent SREB report, strategic planning efforts are one important key for improving struggling high schools. That is, development of a coherent vision and goals – and holding themselves accountable for results. However, most don't link strategy and budgeting. What’s more, many of those with a strategic plan don't execute it!
This session will help aspiring principals learn to develop a strategic plan that is right for their particular needs, and will give them the tools to stick to and implement the plan effectively. The goal is to help APs be better prepared to handle unforeseen problems, gain unexpected results, be better able to analyze and weigh options, and be a visionary for the future.
