Leadership Academy for Senior Academic Administrators
Support Student Success with a Faculty Growth and Evaluation Framework that Teachers Love!

December 5, 2019 | Durham Academy

How do we assure that we have a great faculty to deliver the mission with excellence and ultimately increase student performance, satisfaction, and enthusiasm when it has become increasingly challenging to attract and retain the very best teachers? This workshop answers this question with a ground-breaking growth and evaluation framework for faculty that teachers and administrators have described as “refreshing and eminently doable” and “a gift to the profession.” 

Participants will see ISM’s most recent research on what independent school faculty look for in a work environment, what students look for, and they will examine the critical relationships between leadership, growth and evaluation, faculty culture, and student performance. Participants will also learn how to use growth and evaluation frameworks for Heads, administrators, and non-teaching staff that round out the process to ensure a growth-focused and mission-aligned culture across all areas of the school.
