Leading and Monitoring School Improvement Plans

As a Superintendent and an Assistant Superintendent, I have enjoyed working with school leaders in various parts of the state of Georgia. I have observed that the day-to-day operational issues of running a school often bombard school leaders. Very little, if any, time remains in the school day for principals to be the instructional leaders of the schools. Many principals feel tired, confused, and fragmented.

How can a principal effectively lead and monitor the school improvement plan in the midst of so many challenges? The answer is easier said than done. Nevertheless, by creating a short term 30/45 or 60 day action plan and monitoring the implementation of the plan, positive headway towards closing existing gaps will be made.

Here’s a sample of an action plan template:
