Everyone seems to have an opinion about how districts (and schools) should be run, but it’s the superintendent who takes the heat for the decisions, even when they don’t make them. Even under normal conditions, district leaders are criticized for what gets taught, how taxpayer money is spent, and why a school has—or doesn’t—have a snow day.
But, today, running a district has become even more complex and difficult as the coronavirus and public health guidelines continue to evolve, school board relationships become more fraught, and challenges from parents and staffing shortages mount.
Join Peter DeWitt and his superintendent guests—Mike Nelson, Theresa Rouse, and Morcease J. Beasley—as they discuss their management lessons in the current climate.
