How to Plan for the Summer

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • Bosses are planning on doing whatever their district tells them to do this summer. As a result, they will end up complying with district mandates instead of setting up their own schools for success in the fall.
  • Leaders are busy trying to figure out how they are going to catch up this coming school year. As a result, they fall victim to every fad, mandate, and program as they search for answers. Not only is this approach exhausting, it isn’t even really effective.
  • Builders are using this summer to move them closer to their vision, mission, and core values. Instead of dreading the coming school year and worrying about “learning loss” or even “learning leaps,” Builders are excited about what they can accomplish this fall.

There is a real difference between the way that bosses, leaders, and Builders plan for the summer and that difference determines what kind of school year you're going to have next year. So, on today's episode, we're breaking down the distinction between the way that Builders plan and sharing some "out of the box" ideas about things you can do this summer to set your school up for success next year #LikeABuilder.
