Engagement With New Heads Of School
Having quantified the number of heads of school who are new to their current position since August 2008 (currently 92 in our database), we are conducting visits to gather key information about serving these professionals in ways that improve their interface with their school boards, promote the career path pipeline, and strengthen key skill sets and competencies.
Building Data Competency
Eight heads of school are participating in a pilot Building Data Competency this year. The heads, taken from the New Heads Cohort, are developing their expertise in interpreting and using data. Working with Measuring Success and PEJE, the heads are receiving a solid foundation in a half-day workshop designed specifically for senior Jewish day school professionals at all competency levels. They are also experiencing guided, hands-on learning through the Jewish Day School Parent Survey, one of the Day School Peer Yardstick® Suite of Tools. The Parent Survey helps school leaders identify specific areas for school improvement by reporting data in segments and allowing for comparisons with other schools.
If you are interested in participating in a future BDC, contact PEJE Staff.
Leadership Community Of Practice
Peer-to-peer learning is a powerful strategy for advancing learning and practice. PEJE supports the Leadership CoP for heads of school (and board chairs) to facilitate learning around issues of critical importance to this group.
The Leadership Line provides a no-cost, one hour consultation call for heads of school.
