School leadership in the absence of a plan is underperformance waiting to happen. Highly effective school leaders have a year-long professional development plan 4-6 months prior to the beginning of the new school year, complete with focus strands connected to a finite number of objectives and strategies developed by key stakeholders. This workshop will prepare school leaders for the challenge of developing, implementing, and monitoring a site-based professional development plan based on the strengths, weaknesses and critical weaknesses of the faculty, staff, administration, students, and parents.
