Schoer, Lisa Unger
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v87 n1 p30-33 2014
For high school and middle school principals, the ability to create and maintain positive recognition and identity both personally and for the school is crucial for support from all stakeholders. Finding proactive ways to do this is not much different than the way a large corporation develops a campaign for a major product. Nine principles for developing a positive persona for a school are identified as steps to take to achieve this goal. Beginning with these in mind starts the process for administrators to know who and what they are.
