Parent input session for principal search on June 21 at 3:30

WCPSS will hold a parent session with Area Superintendent Andre Smith on Wednesday, June 21, at 3:30 p.m. in the Joyner gym for all parents who wish to provide input concerning the selection of the new principal. Examples of input include: desired characteristics/qualities, assets, traits, and particular skills/experience.

The information that is gathered will be used to develop a principal profile and a list of questions and issues for the applicant screening and selection process. Individuals unable to attend the input session can email their comments to acsmith@wcpss.net — see the form in MemberHub files for submitting your feedback in writing.

Please use the following outline from WCPSS as you consider the input you’d like to share during the session:  

Without using the name(s) of any staff member, administrator, parent or community person, please share your input in the following categories:
1. General Leadership — How do you see the new principal functioning as chief administrator? Consider developing and implementing policy; managing the budget; hiring, supervising and developing staff; setting disciplinary and sagely standards; planning schedules; and carrying out the total school program.
2. Instructional Leadership — What special qualities in a principal does your school need to set and meet academic goals? Consider school and classroom objectives; faculty, parent and student involvement; curriculum development; student performance and appraisal; and instructional priorities and program needs.
3. Relationships — What kind of relationships inside and outside the school do you feel are critical for your schools’ success? Consider students, parents and staff; the tone of your school environment; levels of interaction; and how your school is represented and perceived in the community.
