• Superintendent Goals 2023-2024

     

    Goal 1 - (PSBA Standard 1)

     

    The Superintendent and Administrative Team will continue cross-building walkthroughs and the book study of John C. Maxwell’s “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.” 

     

    The walkthroughs serve the following purposes: (a) to expose the K-12 Administrative Team to different buildings, classrooms, and staff members, (b) to ensure consistent language and understanding of effective instructional practices at all grade levels, (c) to apply the Charlotte Danielson Framework with fidelity in terms of K-12 observable instruction, and (d) to focus on instructional, social-emotional, and cultural look-fors to get a well-rounded view of what is happening in K-12 regarding effective pedagogy and areas to focus on in the future.  

     

    The purpose of the book study is to give Administrative Team members a better understanding of the core leadership skills necessary for building a solid team: (1) value everyone’s perspective, (2) give the team creative rights to the process, and (3) encourage the team through failure.

     

    Goal 2 - (PSBA Standard 2)
