In schools everywhere, there is a spotlight on safety and on leading a school that is “safe and orderly.” At first glance it seems like it’s all about a focus on security and preventing intruders from disrupting the safety and lives of our children and staffs.
When you look again, leading a safe and orderly school is a multi-faceted challenge. What do you think of when you hear “safe and orderly”? What does the school leader do to not only secure the school, but to make it safe- socially and emotionally as well as from outside forces.
At our Principal and AP Academies, this is our focus for September. Please find the following link to a Google Drive folder full of links, resources, and other items for your study and learning about leading a school that is safe and orderly. Take a look, and if you have additional resources that ought to be in that folder, please contact me with those links so we can share with them with the group at large. Thanks! ~ Mark
