The two discussions in Week Four related to how your values impact your decisions in the recruitment, interview, and hiring process and lead you to this week’s assignment. You will create and share a presentation to your colleagues at the monthly principal’s professional development meeting, where all leadership teams present their ideas and engage in reciprocal feedback. This presentation addresses effective and nurturing practices that help establish a student behavior management system. You will also include a plan for recruiting, selecting, and training school staff.
For this assignment, you will connect the need for effective and nurturing practices with a plan for recruiting, selecting, and evaluating school staff. This is necessary to ensure that the school hires new teachers and staff that can support effective and nurturing practices, producing a student behavior management system geared to positive school relationships and respectfully engaged students who feel competent. Thus, the recruiting, selecting, and training school personnel plan must take this need into account.
