I definitely see the idea of “waiting on” the new superintendent to make decisions instead of assuming that our new hire will have values and skills consistent with our current work.
Mandy Corbin
43:03
Making sure that everyone stays focused and understands the mission and values for the workplace. Maintaining common workplace language, maintaining systems is very important; lowers staff anxiety and helps staff to feel more secure in the workplace.
Denise Wood
43:14
Not wanting to commit to anything too big because we don’t know who our new superintendent will be yet.
Mary Poehls
