Collaboration among top school district leadership is a challenging but essential component for executing the mission and vision of the district. Individually, each member brings his or her own experience and expertise to the district. Together, they move the district down the path of excellence.
Oftentimes, collaboration falls by the wayside not because administrators don’t see its value but because they are busy with their own day-to-day tasks. In order for collaboration to work, it needs to be a priority among district leaders.
Here are some tips for cultivating collaboration among your district’s leadership team, which might include the superintendent, deputy or assistant superintendent(s), and directors of various departments, such as finance, technology, curriculum, human resources and facilities.
Each member of a leadership collaboration should be willing to strike a balance between the needs of the individual (and his or her department) with the needs of the district as a whole. A spirit of compromise from each member is a key component for a successful collaboration. When collaboration is done well, the students of the district are sure to benefit.
