Hi everyone, Ryan Hess, and am proud member of our Studer Education team. I’m looking forward to learning from this great AISD team today.
Brad Galin - Director of Human Resources for the Portage Public Schools in Michigan
Hi - Mary Poehls from Waukesha County Technical College! I serve as the executive team coach and facilitator and lead organizational transformation.
Denise Wood - Director of Quality & Continual Improvement for Urbandale Community School District in Urbandale, Iowa
Phil Cox - Principal Jefferson Middle School - Oak Ridge , TN.... Look forward to presentation
Mandy Corbin, Sonoma County Office of Education, Santa Rosa, California
Theresa Vernetson, Studer Education Consultant
Our President has retired and over the next 18 months will have three retirements on executive team. Just hired a new VP of Student Services.
Mary - this one is for you!
Just realizing, Denise, this is real for your organization too!
Yes, very real! Applications closed yesterday, I believe!
We also started a whole new academic calendar move from 16 week semester to 8 week terms that we also implemented during the pandemic.
Wow! Change never stops...
Check out AISD's website for some SEL resources. So powerful!
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.
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.
Not wanting to commit to anything too big because we don’t know who our new superintendent will be yet.
Great to hear how you celebrated the opening of schools.
We gave our essential workers a small stipend to show appreciation. It really made a difference for these workers.
I love it! And JG does a great job!
Loved the idea of agenda focused on student outcomes
Thank you all!
Thank you for sharing all of this. Super helpful!!!!!
