Well said, Bud. I especially like your comment that “Good schools are about people honestly and intentionally working together very purposefully.”
We are working on changing the Mission/Vision of our district. The term intentional and deliberate keep coming up. In order to make change, we need to be able to have tough, respectful conversations and be able to move on even though we may have differences on opinions.
If we keep our discussions kid-centered and student focused, we can’t go wrong.
