Executing Purposeful Weekly Site Visits


By Dr. Josie Hernandez-Gutierrez

Presentation June 2018

Session Description

The role of the principal has changed in the last decade into a more demanding and complex position.  This shift has resulted in a new paradigm for principal coaching and supervision work.  While it is clear that effective supervision requires regularly scheduled visits to schools to coach principals, how to conduct these visits in ways that result in improved practice has been more difficult.  This session will address how districts can plan and execute purposeful weekly site visits to transform schools and improve academic achievement.  Participants will learn practical strategies for defining high quality weekly sites visits and receive tools to support this work.
