Critical Leadership Strategies for Turnaround School Success

"Turnaround" is a frequent buzzword in and around education. Whether driven by inherent challenges affecting student achievement or simply a desire to excel, schools and districts want to improve. However, actually turning a school around is wrought with many challenges. Too often, schools pursue a "Band-Aid" approach with programs that don't work and drain the valuable resources of time and money.

In this eye-opening session, Rick Fernandez will walk attendees through lessons learned after taking over a struggling school previously closed down by the Texas Education Agency. Dr. Fernandez saw that traditional hiring processes were proving ineffective for his impoverished school, and addressed the need to develop a model for hiring teachers with a different skill set. This successful protocol and his outside-the-box perspective on leadership proved effective and provide a blueprint for working with other schools in need of a turnaround.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

    • Understand generational poverty and its effect on classroom behavior.

    • Discern the attributes needed for effective "turnaround" teachers in your situation.

    • Adopt best practices using this outside-the-box hiring protocol.

    • Apply leadership "do's and don'ts" learned in the trenches with turnaround schools


ABOUT THE PRESENTER:

 Rick Fernandez, Ed.D., has more than 13 years’ experience in education and currently serves as Lead Administrator at a high school in the Houston area.  He began his career teaching English Language Arts at the secondary level.  After taking over a struggling school previously closed down by the Texas Education Agency, Dr. Fernandez saw that traditional hiring processes were proving ineffective for his impoverished school, and felt compelled to develop a model for hiring teachers with a different skill set.  This successful protocol and his outside-the-box perspective on leadership proved effective and provide a blueprint for working with other schools in need of a turnaround.
