School Leadership & Management, v32 n5 p487-501 2012
This article examines school and school district-level efforts to reopen schools after significant damage from hurricanes. Through an empirical, qualitative research design, four themes emerged as critical to the hurricane recovery process: the importance of communication, resolving tension, coordinating with other services and learning from the past. School administrators must proactively plan for catastrophic events and balance the need for open communication within and outside the school district; to resolve tensions; and to coordinate with other public and private efforts to restore the community. Finally, they should use each experience as a learning opportunity. (Contains 1 figure.)
