Hi Marie,

I recently went through the Leadership Excellence Academy with Kathi Polis and Lennox McClendon, and we started with various self-assessment options. The academy felt that beginning with assessing the felt needs of the students, teachers, administrators, and stakeholders was a great way to determine what else needed to be done in our program. Then we used these self-assessments to decide what data we needed to review for purposes of program improvement. I am not sure if this is what you were looking for, but this is what came to mind.

We would like to have more of a focus on data in our program, but it’s so difficult to know where to start – we could work on so many different aspects of the program. Does the panel have recommendations of what to tackle first, second, etc? Or recommendations on how to decide what to do first?
