LRP Media Group, a recognized leader in the special education publishing industry, has released Leading a School District Requires Clarity, Context, and Candor: An Aligned System to Increase Student Achievement at Scale by Dr. Peter Gorman with Dail Willis.

Recognized nationally as an education leader and for developing outstanding leadership teams, Dr. Peter Gorman has distilled his 30 years of experience into this professional development guide for aspiring and serving superintendents. It’s packed with big ideas plus an action plan for putting the ideas into practice — to guide you in taking concrete steps that increase student achievement and close achievement gaps.

These hands-on scenarios take you through:

  • Preparing and applying to be a superintendent: The Board of Education, reform governance, board communications, and media and public relations.
  • Entering as superintendent: evaluating the current state, developing an entry plan, and building public trust.
  • Establishing systems, processes and structures: the “meat” of the book, focusing on climate and culture, an aligned system, creating a strategic plan, and much more.
  • Implementing a theory of action: strategic staffing, accountability, data-based decision-making, and differentiated resources.

Leading a School District Requires Clarity, Context, and Candor: An Aligned System to Increase Student Achievement at Scale is available for purchase from LRP Publications’ online store.
