To create a system that adds significant value to student performance requires some unique and specific leadership values. Performance then hinges on the level of individual and organizational commitment to those values. The more rigorous the commitment to these values, the better the results. Be less than rigorous and the system either quits moving forward and/or quickly sinks into the mire of mediocrity.
Here are the core values:
School Board Core Value: The district will always put the needs of children above the wants of adults.
Superintendent Core Value: When I am faced with competing agendas, refer to the Board’s core value.
Principal Core Value: I am the best / only pure advocate for my students.
Ignore, short-cut or compromise these values and you put the future of your students in peril.
Think. Work. Achieve.
