Principal Leadership Checklist
When I was a principal of a year round middle school I did not realize the summer time was meant for reflecting, relaxing and tweaking your next year school plans!
As a result, I spent many hours working in a silo trying to get everything ready for teacher workdays and the first day of school.
I remember saying, "If only I had a guide or a checklist for each month to keep me ahead of the game!"
Well, I did my best to create one. It is part of our BluePrint4Success, Principal Leadership Academy and our most popular resource.
This checklist is based on over ten thousand hours as a school leader and a consultant.

“I wanted to send a little note of thanks for your presence today. The team building/leadership training we conducted was hands down amazing. Today, I felt we made some leeway - and sparked some enthusiasm in my thought process. ”
"It is incredibly inspiring to be around this group of people..."
- Michael Luplow, FernLeaf Community Charter School
"You kept us focused and on track..."
-Natalie Parker, Piedmont Community Charter School
“Facilitating a group is a gift, and you have it. It’s not easy working with a group of adults, but you were able to keep us on track and moving forward. As a small group coordinator you interjected at just the right moment to turn the conversation back on track or to point out that the group has landed in a place of consensus so we could move on.
