The High School Principal's Calendar: A Month-by-Month Planner for the School Year.
Ricken, Robert; Simon, Richard; Terc, Michael
This book has been developed for both new and experienced principals; it lays out everyday challenges and administrative necessities to help principals plan strategically for the academic year. This work provides a month-to-month guide to make the school year run smoothly from opening to closing. Chapters cover key tasks for each month beginning in July: overview of tasks; communications--letters, memos, correspondence, media relationships; planning--workshops, orientations, field trips, fundraising activities; personnel--assignments, schedules, rosters, tenure recommendations; and checklists to monitor progress with an assortment of tasks for each month. These checklists offer flexibility for modification, and the monthly calendar helps busy administrators avoid reinventing the wheel each year. Appendices include sample documents, teachers' manual index, and various memos covering fundraising, building security, class elections, locker cleanup, weekly memo, orientation agenda, and emergency drills, among others.
