PHILOSOPHY

Strong ethical leadership is essential in the establishment of an environment that is safe, caring, productive, efficient and conducive for student and staff growth. 

Mission

My mission is to provide staff with the necessary tools, materials, support, training and opportunities to improve student and staff learning.  I will contribute to the creation of an atmosphere of trust, collaboration, respect and support to improve both staff and student growth.

Student Achievement Goals

 

A.   I will provide leadership and the necessary support to the administrative staff, in the area of Relationships, Relevance, Rigor, and Collaboration so they can in turn provide meaningful learning opportunities for their staff and students.  This will be measured by in-service training information, related topics shared at administrative council meetings and other related topics that can contribute to their overall ability to positively contribute to the growth of their staff and students.

B.   I will provide leadership and the necessary support to the administrative staff in the area of teacher and staff evaluations as it relates to overall student achievement.  This will be measured by in-service training information, related topics shared at administrative council meetings and retreat, along with other related topics that can contribute to their overall ability to positively contribute to the growth of their staff and overall improvement of student learning throughout the 2012-2013 school year. 

C.  I will provide leadership, training and support to continue our continued implementation of Professional Learning Communities and new implementation of the Common Core State Standards in each of our schools within the district. This will be measured by scheduled in–service trainings done with the administration and instructional staff, our Ninety Day PLC Plan, Principal Professional Learning Communities meetings and scheduled professional development on the topic throughout the 2012-2013 academic year.

Safe Environment Goals

 A. I will investigate the options available to install security cameras at our secondary campuses.  This will be measured by documented presentations throughout the Fall semester of 2012. 
B. I will continue to work the County Emergency Operations Center and central office staff in charge of safety, along with other entities, in order to continue to stay updated on current issues in school safety. This will be measured by meeting agendas, updated safety plans, and participation in table top exercises with the SJCEOC.

Financial Oversight Goals

A. I will continue to monitor the overall budget and identify ways we can put more money directly into the classroom.  This will be done through monthly meetings with our Director of Finance throughout the 2012-2013 school year. 
B. I will work with the Director of Finance to ensure that we update and monitor our Performance Based Budgeting Plan.  This will be done throughout the 2012-2013 school year.
C. I will monitor the current economic situation in our area so we can determine when we will be about to sell our bonds that were approved in February of 2012.  This will be measured by email correspondence and other presentations done at local Board Meetings
