As a member district to the Mid-Ohio ESC, you are invited to receive the following support:

Where are we now?

Each administrator completes a survey that measures the following factors: collective leadership, teacher collaboration, professional development, unity of purpose, collegial support and learning partnership. Dr. Burke facilitates a full day meeting where we review the results, discuss implications of the survey with the entire leadership team, and provide a report with recommendations. Dr. Burke also meets individually with each school leader to discuss their individual survey results and how they inform individual leadership goals. Where are we going? Following the initial leadership meeting, Dr. Burke in partnership with Educational Partnership Institute LLC (EPI), he will produce a support plan proposal to help districts set priorities.

How will we get there?

Principals are invited to join us for three Lunch and Learns. These sessions will be held immediately after the Mid-Ohio ESC superintendents’ meetings in September, December and May. Administrative teams can enjoy lunch together and discuss the topic of the day. Principals will then stay for a 90 minute learning session where they will gain insight on a topic and engage in take-and-do activities they can immediately use to apply what they learned. Sessions will be developed to address shared areas for growth identified through the initial survey. Dr. Burke will also provide monthly individual leadership coaching to interested principals to help them stay focused on their leadership goals.

How can we help?

While the ESC can provide some leadership programming to our member districts at no charge, we encourage you to consider investing in yourself with retained support services. Schools have more resources than ever, and investing a portion of those resources in your leaders has a great return on investment. A few meetings in a year and some coaching can be a helpful start to get on the right track, but change requires embedded and ongoing support. The Mid-Ohio ESC has partnered with EPI to provide additional retained support. EPI has a successful track record of working with districts long term to develop, implement and sustain initiatives. Retained services will keep your district focused, accelerate implementation, develop coherence and sustainability, and provide just-in-time coaching and support to your leaders. This level of support will allow Dr. Burke in partnership with EPI to be more actively engaged in your leadership team meetings and facilitate the development of district plans, protocols and shared tools. Upon completion of the initial administrative meeting, we will prepare a customized support plan for your consideration to help your administrators stay focused on their leadership goals.
