Executive Training: Increase Student Achievement and Avoid High Leadership Turnover with Head Training

Executive Training: Increase Student Achievement and Avoid High Leadership Turnover with Head Training

Executive coaching for school leaders increases student achievement and learning by helping school leaders become more successful, implementing change in their schools and lasting long enough to ensure that constructive change actually occurs. Without forward movement, the school will retreat. Given the state of many schools, withdrawing is a disaster. In any school, no matter how good it is, change is very important for learning, which is a matter of school home.

School CEOs – principals, directors, executive directors – have complex jobs and many demands.

In the end, they are responsible for all aspects of school operations. From student achievement and curriculum to finance and facilities, the principal is responsible. That’s where the responsibility stops, regardless of school resources or practicality of purpose.

It’s no surprise that the average tenure of a private school head is 4.5 years. Public school principal tenure is about the same – 5 years for elementary school principals, 4.5 years for middle school principals and 3.5 years for high school principals.

One doesn’t need to be an organizational rocket scientist to know that :

  • A leader’s first year on the job is mostly about learning the culture and operations, building relationships, and determining what and how to change.
  • In the second year, school leaders might have ideas to make some changes. In the best-case scenario, the faculty joins to make changes at the end of the second year.
  • In the third year, change begins to take place.
  • In year four, if the change is going well – which is rare – real progress begins.

The data show that most school leaders are on their way out the door when real change is just beginning.

This cycle is repeated thousands and thousands of times at the expense of students and learning.

It doesn’t need to …

4 Tips to Choosing School for Children

Education is a long-term investment in future children’s success. Therefore, parents must not be careless in choosing schools for children. Which school is the best?

A thing you should look for is the best school for your children. It means you need to choose a school that works best for your children’s needs.

Why? Children are subjects of education. Therefore, make sure that the children’s education is in favor of their needs, that is, meaningful, fun, and challenging in their appropriate stage of development. Thus, according to the experts of education. One of the best school examples with an international curriculum, visit the website: https://www.patana.ac.th/.

After placing children’s needs as your priority in choosing a school, then you can consider the following:

Parents also have situations and conditions that also need to pay attention to. For example distance and school fees, preference on religious or vocational-based schools, and so on.

The Challenges We Face Looking for Opportunities!

The Challenges We Face Looking for Opportunities!

Every day must be an opportunity to grow as an individual and our future success must continue to influence our family, friends and colleagues. How can this be achieved? By having positive attitude and outlook, we deliver messages that people will receive and want to hear. My passion is always embracing people and looking for positive qualities that they have or are able to get. Sometimes simple expression or welcome goes long way. In its basic form, words of encouragement can create relationships and bonds that last lifetime. It can also change someone’s mindset towards us or how they approach us. With uncertainty always around the corner, sometimes great opportunities are disguised as challenges, but we never see opportunities because we focus on challenges, not opportunities.

I have never been person who avoids challenges and too often when we are faced with changes in our lives, we don’t want to progress. We spend so much time looking back and regretting decisions made or choices we have never made, we fail to embrace new opportunities or look for something better: new start, new start. Opportunities that we might ignore or take for granted because we think it might not be achieved. We do not believe we have the ability or talent to do the task at hand.

Although we often spend time reflecting on the past, uncertainty about the future must be our driving force. Our past successes and failures can shape our outlook on life, but adventures to grow and expand our experiences through new opportunities, new friends or locations must encourage us to succeed. The unknown must encourage our existence and inspire us to go forward! We don’t know what to expect in the future and we don’t know what we can achieve in the future.…

Adjusting To The Kids School Run

Adjusting To The Kids School Run

For many parents getting up in the morning isn’t only about getting their children ready for the school day, but also for getting themselves ready for a full day of work. As a result there are parents across the country who are up in the early hours of the morning making sure they’ve got everything they need for the day ready before they even think about helping their children.

Getting children ready for school is an entirely different matter altogether. Children never want to get up out of bed, and they need more sleep than adults as they’re growing all the time, but for school they need to be up in time to work with mum or dad’s morning. Children need to be washed, clothed and fed before parents even think about checking their school bag for the day, putting in the books they need and taking out what they don’t.

Once parents have mastered the art of coping with all of this every morning, they need to master driving to school and dropping the children off before driving on to work or back home. For parents who don’t work, school runs are a lot easier, as a lot of stuff for the next day can be prepared the day before, such as lunches and school bags. For parents who work there is precious little time in the evenings to prepare anything for the next school day, as parents also want to spend time with their children, not only doing things for them.

New parents don’t need to learn to adjust their mornings to the school run for a while, but learning to cope with having it in a morning is a hard process. Firstly parents need to learn to get up in the morning much earlier to be up …
