  3. Define and clarify rigor, emotional intelligence and competitive job skills regarding tiered professional development services.
  4. Conduct pre and post meetings (Focus Groups) to review feedback to review and address concerns with campus administration and instructional campus staff.
  5. Define and identify the who, what, when, where and why of professional development to be delivered at every campus and/or district all based on need.

Leadership Model

A key element in our quest for continuous improvement also centers on the individual. It is best explained through our new leadership model. Our model centers on the instructional core perspective through high level content, strong teacher skill and student engagement. It emphasizes the business perspective (total quality management), synergistic relationships, continuous improvement through self-evaluation, and the creation of systems and processes that enhance the learning and working environment. It also embraces the development of one’s emotional intelligence through self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills, creating a positive culture and climate in our learning environment assuring a sense of belonging. District-wide training on our leadership model is underway to include all employees and students.
