Let me start by saying that I am not moving schools, so this is not a post to address my own personal situation. Furthermore, I will temporarily refrain from injecting my own opinions on whether the impact that an administrative shuffle has is positive or negative. But I would like to generate some discussion on this topic that I feel merits some examination. So, I would be curious to see responses from our PLN on the following:
- Should Principals move? What are the reasons they should stay in their current situation? What are the reasons they should go?
- If so, is there an optimum number of years that a Principal should be at a school?
- Does the movement of Principals promote a "Flavor of the Month" culture, or is it important to have some cross pollination of administration?
Look forward to your comments.
