Expectations for Leaders

This week’s question was about high expectations but not for students. And not for teachers. 

It was about high expectations for school leaders. The answers were great and followed these themes:

  1. Communication
  2. Clarity
  3. Servant Leading
  4. Visibility

Here’s a look at some of the top Tweets from the #822chat.

High Expectations for School Leadership

Question: What are some important high expectations for school leadership?

“School leaders must communicate well. Especially with the teachers who need them. I’ve never known an effective leader to not communicate. Leaders provide direction, clarity and wipe away obstacles that can only be noticed on clear paths. I expect this effort of a leader” @pattersonaubrey

“Leading as a servant, acting with integrity and always treating people with respect and dignity!” @asbellprincipal

“Visibility. The leader has to be in it! High expectations start with the leader. If you expect greatness, you have to show greatness.” @foster_nancy

“Celebrating successes. One at a time.” @MaryElisondo
