School Closure and Loss: Guiding a District through the Change Process
McDonald, Teena
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v21 n2 p15-27 Jun 2018
This case study is designed for aspiring principal and superintendent leadership candidates who are studying transitions, change theory in organizations, or board/superintendent relations. It examines the arduous process of closing a school and making huge cuts in a small district because of declining enrollment and expenditures that far outweighed revenue. In this case study, the superintendent and leadership team play the complex roles of communicators, grief counselors, organizers, and change agents.
