Economics Leadership After evaluating a teacher, you determine the teacher is in need of an improvement plan. During the post-conference, the teacher explains the students were both productively and cognitively engaged at a high level. This is a drastically different perception than yours. What do you do? Clearly upset, the teacher refuses to sign the evaluation. What are your options? Scenarios . . . You have just assumed your first administrative role as an Assistant Principal. During the first two weeks, the Principal is transferred to another building. The district has appointed you as the Interim Principal. A few teachers approach you and ask you, "How will you handle running a school without any experience? What is your response? As the principal, a parent visits the school and demands to speak to you. The parent is upset with a teacher in your building. Your front staff tells the parent that you are in classrooms observing teachers. The parent states, "Either the principal speaks with me now, or I am going to the Superintendent or the Board". What do you do? In order to participate in athletics, parents are required to pay $50 for the season. During the middle of football season, an upset parent calls you.

For the past five (5) years, your Student Council Adviser has established the program as one of the best in the state receiving accolades and awards from the state. Your district has cut all adviser pay. This adviser has stated she will not "work for free." If she does not receive a stipend, she will not advise the Student Council. What will be your decision? Why? In your district leadership meeting, you are told that the district will be facing major reductions for the following year. You are given the directive to determine which two (2) teachers you will RIF based on his or her evaluation. The Superintendent instructs you to to keep this information confidential. The following week, the teacher you plan to RIF approaches you and says:
"I am really glad to be working here. You are a supportive Principal and I feel I will continue to progress as a teacher. My wife and I just purchased a home in the community. We wanted to live close to my place of employment because we just found out we are having our first child."

It is the educational leader's role to lead with vision. Visioning is a specific skill successful leaders excel at implementing.

Indications of the type of climate that exists in a school are the appearance of the building, the mannerisms of the people, and the feelings individuals have about visiting the school and transacting business there. School culture is the interwoven pattern of beliefs, values, practices, and artifacts that specify for faculty members, students, parents, and stakeholders who they are and how they are to function Is your school's culture and climate assessed on a regular basis? Explain. Participative Leadership Theory Distributive Leadership Theory Facilitative Leadership Theory Member identity: the degree to which an administrator, teacher, or other staff member identifies with the school as a whole rather than with his or her job or profession. The closer identification with the school, the more positive the culture. Group emphasis: the degree to which administrators, teachers, and other staff members organize their work activities around groups rather than individuals. The more group emphasis, the more positive the culture. People focus: the degree to which administrators, teachers, and other staff members take into consideration the effects of their decisions on people. The higher the degree of concern, the more positive the culture. Unit integration: the degree to which units in the school are encouraged to operate in a coordinated or interdependent manner. The higher degree of coordination, the more positive the culture. Control: the degree to which rules, regulations, and direct supervision are used to control the behavior of administrators, teachers, staff members, and students. Less control and increased levels of trust lead to a more positive culture. Risk tolerance: the degree to which administrators, teachers, and other staff members are encouraged to be aggressive, innovative, and risk seeking. The higher the encouragement, the more positive the culture. Reward criteria: the degree to which rewards and promotions are allocated according to performance rather than seniority, favoritism, or other nonperformance factors. The rewards for performance create a more positive culture. Conflict tolerance: the degree to which administrators, teachers, and other staff members are encouraged to express their criticisms openly. The more open the climate, the more positive the culture. Means-end orientation: the degree to which administrators, teachers, and other staff members focus on outcomes rather than on the strategies and processes used to achieve outcomes. The more engaged, the more positive the culture. Open-system focus: the degree to which a school monitors and responds to changes in the external environments. Addressing needs and demands lead to a more positive culture. LEADERSHIP discuss... Upon returning from Christmas break, a principal in another building took a new job in another district.
