It has been said that a school’s mission and vision are the means by which school leaders enlist the help and participation of stakeholders to focus on an agreed-upon destination. A strong mission and vision are vital to the growth of any organization, especially schools. How can leaders get everyone to participate in the mission and vision creation process, and ensure the document serves the purpose it was intended to serve?
Creating Your School’s Mission and Vision is part of a new series of edWebinars in the Principal Leadership: Making a Difference community on edWeb. This series will be based on the results of the 2019 Principal Leadership Survey where administrators shared their biggest challenges, accomplishments, and the topics they are most interested in.
In this edWebinar, join high school principal Shannon Holden and special guests as they discuss the most effective ways to build a school’s mission and vision. This presentation will be of interest to all school leaders and any educator interested in how to create positive and effective learning environments in today’s world. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
