The Center for Executive Education Leadership (CEEL) Principals' Series - Silver Strand consists of four sessions that have been designed to help you in your professional and personal growth.

Planning and Data-Driven Decision-making

October 25, 2018

Even in making the many “on the spot” decisions required of a school leader, the effective leader knows that significant planning and data precede the best decisions. Attend this interactive session where experienced facilitators will help you polish your planning and decision-making skills. Additionally, we will apply the collection and use of data to management decisions, and most importantly to guiding the decisions for the academic progress of the students in your care.

Three Levels of Finance and Budget Basics

November 28, 2018

School finance is a complex subject from the state level down to the school level. During this leadership class, you will explore the three levels of education funding and how each level impacts the next. You will gain knowledge on how the state appropriates dollars for education and what other factors influence the appropriation. You will learn how money flows from the state to the school district and how the amounts are calculated. Finally, you will learn how to construct a school budget. By improving your financial know-how, you’ll empower yourself in many ways. You’ll know how to justify requests and translate performance into financial terms.

So You're a Principal: Now What?

February 5, 2019

This workshop will present information to aspiring principals to identify behaviors of an effective leader in the role of principal, especially including how to inspire moving forward with creativity and action.  As a result participants will be better prepared to overcome traditional thinking patterns, have more confidence in their ability to creatively engage in their position, and be able to assess the impact of possible new approaches.  Also, content will help reshape thinking on innovation, providing knowledge of the different elements of creativity and how to build ideas in a group to let innovation flow and action result.   

Selecting Your Team

March 19, 2019

Everyone is aware of the increasing difficulty in recruiting and retaining good teachers and other staff.  In addition to recruiting difficulties, ensuring you’ve hired the best candidate is crucial. A recent survey by CareerBuilder found that 69 percent of organizations have been adversely affected by a bad hire in the past year.   The consequences include any or all of the following: lost productivity, time required to hire and train another person, drag on morale throughout the department or organization, diminished results, and legal issues.  This session will provide information on current teacher recruitment strategies as well as behavioral interviewing as a technique for ensuring you know how to hire the right person for the job.
