1. For Your Information

As your school year begins we would like to highlight to you the importance of planning your new year ahead. Of course, you expect your school to have a successful year, but what you have to remember is that, on the way to succeeding, there will be pitfalls.

If you do not plan to succeed, your school could be mired into the pitfalls and never get out of them. In order for your school to do its best, you have to plan for it to do its best. The benefits of planning ahead for your school are:

1. Planning helps decision makers by providing guidelines and goals for future decisions.
2. Planning helps a principal to exercise more control in a situation, establish goals "proactively" and consider contingencies.
3. Planning can help quantify goals and establish a means of measuring success.
4. Planning can help insure that a coherent set of actions are implemented that are consistent with the values and priorities of the decision maker.
