In early August, the district’s management team gathered to kick off the beginning of a new school year. We talked about the elements of a world class district. I shared this great TedX talk with Grant Lichtman who shares what he found out about innovation happening in schools while traveling across the US, and how some of the “secrets” have been around for over one hundred years.
We also talked about the research on successful leadership styles, assessed the skills we summon as school district leaders, and how the key to our continued success is being able to access the right leadership skills at the right time. We talked about how together we can start a movement.
