Hello and welcome! If you have a question for the panel, please drop it here in the chat box and we will pass it along.
Lots of educational leaders from all over the country! So glad you are all here to learn with us.
Thanks for offering this time @Valerie/Jackie/Alison/Jimmy
Hello all! Cynthia Williams, Assistant Principal, Greenville County Schools, SC. Proud of our wonderful district leaders!
This is an example of how important it is to have the Great example of how the Superintendent is leading and supporting this work and adapting as needed
Eric Hilversum, Principal, Windham Technical High School (CTECS), Willimantic, CT
Alejandro Ortiz, New Britain, CT Public Schools, how did you support our most disadvantaged students during this time? EL and SPED students
Communication to the principal is essential since they are the chief information officer for their schools. Parents look to them for answers. Great job GCS
Great examples Nerissa and Jay.
The specificity of these strategies is greatly appreciated. Love the discussion of how leadership has grown through the past few months
So glad to see that we are focusing on the care of our students but also the care of the principals....
question for principals--what do you wish you had in the way of support that you did not get?
Consistent messages from CDC, state and local health departments that impacted school decisions.
The leadership of these Principal Supervisors during the disruption of Covid19 is extraordinary. The constant communication, the support, resource sharing, and care demonstrates how adaptive and resilient we are as educators
That is a very good point!
I agree with Daniel Mello. Everything is so fluid with COVID infection levels that I have to create multiple plans and be ready to implement all at a moment's notice.
So much agree with Jackie. We're seeing extraordinary leadership in extraordinary times. We're seeing just how much leadership matters!
yes modeling is so important.
We realize how important it was for the department of CIA to work with the other departments to make the adaptations necessary to serve students in a virtual environment....Principal Supervisors were helping with the navigation of this work in collaboration with principals
Loved Dr. Royster's reference to our Clemson Tigers!
Well stated Jay
Jay and Scott you are providing so many examples of how high schools are complex and this shift created the need to recreate major milestones such as graduation.
What do principals and supervisors plan to do differently in the fall based on what they learned this year? And, if we go back to the brick and mortar schools in the fall, what, if anything, will they do differently, because of what we learned during the physical distance that worked too well not do keep doing?
Thanks Jill for question five!
I so appreciate the thoughtful questions and the superb execution of this webinar. I'm not surprised. Dr. Baker and Dr. Royster are great models of superintendent leadership. Obviously, we see how their influence is reflected in the responses from Jay, Nerissa, and Scott. Kudos to all and much thanks to Valerie and AASA for timely, relevant learning.
I agree Nerissa. The emotional supports for teachers, principals and students is something we must tend to--and we must definitely keep our focus on the issues around equity and access.
Is this recorded and wil it be sent---I apologize if you have addressed this
@Rosie Vojtek I plan to continue to support the mental, physical and emotional resources of my Principals.
In this time of uncertainty and unrest, we salute you all for your courageous leadership. Be safe, be healthy, be strong. Let us know at AASA if we can support you in any way. There are over 80 webinars at aasa.org that might inform your practice. We have tapped the best thought leaders in our country to learn with ~ including you. Thanks for being here.
Thank you very much.
Fast fluid Flexible and factual Thank you !
Thank you very much!
Thank you, everyone.
Now that our students are coming back. Call them in and talk to them.
This was wonderful. I love that you truly took into consideration supporting principals through this very uncertain time. Thank you!
