FASA Staff To Shadow Principals

This week FASA and representatives of the National Association Elementary and Middle Schools Principals met in Tallahassee to develop a new model for recruitment and retention of members. The meeting was lead by Elizabeth Bailey of the 2b communications from Manhattan Beach, CA. Monique Talbot, Director of Membership (NAESP) from Washington, D.C. helped facilitate the meeting with FASA staff as we jointly reviewed trend in national and state statistics membership categories, cost and benefits. The highlight of day two of their visit was a luncheon group of members and non-member principals. The focus group examined why principals choose to join the state and/or national associations; while we do not have a consensus report, we did learn this: With the exception of your Executive Director none of the FASA staff has degree in education or experience in a school setting (except as a public school student).

Thus, starting this month all five staff members will spend a day shadowing a principal or assistant principal at the elementary school level. “We need to experience a typical day from arrival to the end of the school if we want to relate to our principals and provide member services that make a difference,” said Michele White our new chief operating officer. Plans are being made to expand shadowing to middle and high schools this spring.

FASA Moves Forward with Leadership Connection

A leadership crisis in Florida has become a reality with hundreds of school and district level leaders exiting DROP and retiring. With this exodus in key leadership positions, districts must focus on attracting talented leadership who will have a direct impact on improving instructional quality, achieving higher levels of school and district productivity, and producing increases in student achievement. 

Currently there is not a single point of advertisement where districts can post their leadership vacancies in Florida so as to attract these quality leaders. Under the leadership of former superintendent Bill Vogel, and John Reichert, former Human Resources Director of Seminole County, FASA is preparing to launch the Leadership Connection. This portal will allow Florida school districts to post their district and school level administrative position vacancies on the site.

The Leadership Connection will allow for a standard Job Posting Template for district use. The information to be entered for each job posting will include the: Job Title - Vacancy Posting Date - Application Deadline (by default, this is 30 days from the day the job is posted) - School District and Region - Job Type (superintendent, district office administrator, principal, assistant principal) - Deadline for Applications - Position Details (general duties; reports to; minimum qualifications; salary range; length of work year; etc.) - Email Address (district contact) - Website Address (for linking to the district’s online job posting or the district’s application portal or the district website). While this is similar to FASA's current Career Center, the Leadership Connection will allow school districts who elect to register and participate in posting on the FASA portal unlimited postings of applicable positions for an annual fee based upon the district’s PreK-12 student membership as reported in survey 2.

Leadership Connection is still under construction. Watch the Friday Facts for more updates.
