School Leadership Team

As you begin to create your School Leadership Teams, you may be asking yourself, “Just who should be on my School Leadership Team?”  Consider including the following individuals:woman_leader_casual_silhouette_400_clr_3840

  • Principal
  • Assistant Principal(s)
  • Content Coaches
  • School Transformation Coach
  • 2 – 3 Teacher Leaders
  • 1 Significant Support Personnel

These individuals must attend IMPACT Training as they will be integral to the work ahead. For more information on the purpose and expectations of the School Leadership Team, please refer to GRAPHIC 1.1:  SCHOOL LEADERSHIP TEAM under Resources.

School Self-Portait

The Self-Portrait will be a fundamental part of the upcoming IMPACT training and will help you and your School Leadership Team design future goals around your school’s priorities.  The Self-Portrait will be a constant indication of your school’s values and an ever evolving representation of your school’s priorities.

DPS SIG5 Schools will need to bring a physical self-portrait to IMPACT Training, thus we recommend creating this on chart paper. Be specific and consider using bulleted list, colored markers/pens,  stickers, data, and other artifacts you can think of to brand your school.  If necessary, review GRAPHIC 1.2:  SCHOOL SELF-PORTRAIT CONSIDERATIONS under Resources for more information on what to include in your Self-Portrait.

 

Contact Information:  If you need more information, have questions, or need assistance with any of the items listed above , please do not hesitate to contact Kevi Dixon at kdixon@educonsultingfirm.com or at 919-633-0338.
