How a lot would you pay for a crystal ball that would foresee the following college disaster? Although the continuing pandemic has been known as a ‘once-in-a -lifetime disaster for varsity,’ we all know that future crises are, sadly, inevitable. What faculties, educators and households have skilled over the past two years has radically modified our understanding of what it means to actually care for college students and lecturers.
After almost 20 years in schooling, one factor I’ve realized is there isn’t a ‘regular.’ Whether or not it’s a nationwide trainer scarcity, difficult politics, funding instability or the devastating affect of gun violence on our communities, there’s all the time a faculty disaster to navigate.
How can faculties put together for the following disaster whereas guaranteeing their long-term success? I could not have that crystal ball, however I do have management philosophies which have helped our faculties stay the highest-performing elementary faculties of their respective neighborhoods.
I hope, pandemic or not, faculties can proceed to share working strategies with one another so that each one college students have entry to high-quality schooling.
