Creating a Vision for Your School

Creating a Vision for Your School
Moving from Purpose to Practice

72 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Approaching school development as a training project for all staff, this book helps schools work towards collectively selected goals. In sharp contrast to a top-down management style, it offers guidelines for involving staff, parents, and students. A set of activities links the events and requires active participation by all staff, working with pupils to complete the tasks.

This model can be adapted for any school setting to develop a unified team effort. Whether your school is currently successful or in need of improvement, it provides a critical focus on change and development towards an agreed goal. Reproducibles on a CD-ROM help you to customize the program to reach an outcome suited to your own school culture.
