Strategies for Opening New Schools: A Planning Guide for School Personnel
Lane, Kenneth
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v3 n1 Jan-Jun 2008
Too often the principal is left without the benefit of a plan or the awareness of how to deal with the problems that inevitably arise when opening a new school. The school facility is an instructional tool and as such, it may either enhance or detract from the educational program. The success or failure of how a new school opens or is perceived to open depends in a large measure upon the ability of the principal to open the new school. This document provides a listing of the problems, strategies to deal with those problems, and an informational bank from which principals could draw plans to aid them in effectively opening their respective schools. The information would serve to enable the principals to foresee problems and correct them before they become issues that appear unsolvable and have the potential of dividing the community.
