Who Should Attend: Administrators, teachers, coaches, support staff, business office staff, and any other employees of the school.
During this two-hour workshop participants, will gain a deeper understanding of how the decisions and relationships they create have an impact on student admissions, influence the lives of families, and impact the larger goals of the school. We'll explore how to assess the engagement level of your faculty, identify key factors that have a positive and a negative influence, and issue a challenge for greater commitment to both individual and collaborative readiness.
What's the feedback from others who
have attended this workshop?
From Administrators who Have Participated:
- "The most important thing for faculty to hear and understand is that every teacher (and staff member) is in the admission/advancement department. They play the leading, most critical role everyday in the decision of our current parents to re-enroll and they have already begun to make that decision for next year. Even as a teacher myself, I never heard that and it has changed the way I look at each teacher."
- "The way in which you presented the material was very appealing. All the while you were telling the teachers what they need to be and do, you did so by encouraging and affirming them. Your comments called them to step up even more than they are now. I think the teachers came away understanding just how much they are valued as professionals and as part of the team."
- "As the principal, I was encouraged by the way I saw the teachers remain interested throughout the session. I believe they have a new way of looking at their role as part of the larger team. No matter how vast our programs may become or what type of facility we may live in, student engagement and parent satisfaction lie largely with the teacher and that does not depend on programs or facility."
From the Faculty who Have Participated:
- "It was good to talk about the school as a whole program. It helped to understand the bigger picture and to see how each person/department plays a role in enrollment."
- "We are all responsible for bringing in new students, not just Admissions."
- "I get it--Teach with the future in mind."
- "This felt good, a shot in the arm!"
- "It placed a great weight of responsibility on me as a teacher, in a good way. I have a greater understanding of the importance of my role to the program as a whole and specifically for retaining current students."
