Upper School Heads Cohort
About the cohort
The Upper School Head cohort will focus on building and protecting school culture through work with faculty, students, and parents. We will examine the skeletal structures needed to support a healthy school atmosphere, along with practices helpful in nurturing it. Responding to threats to good culture—whether student misbehavior, conflicts, or disparities between classroom and co-curricular expectations—will be discussed throughout the year. Preparatory reading will include articles and book excerpts. Each session will include conversation of the month’s topic, updates from participants, and prayer for one another. Robyn will offer office hours between sessions during which participants can bring up situations that they face for mutual brainstorming and encouragement.
Meeting Dates and Times: Cohort meetings will be the first Thursday of each month 3:30-5:00 (ET), beginning on September 1st.
