Strengthen school leadership, school governance, and school operational structures
Poor leadership and unsystematic governance can lead to the ineffectiveness, or even the collapse, of a school. This is unacceptable. Christian Schools International will focus on increasing Christian school leaders’ capacity for managing and, if need be, transforming their schools through multiple training opportunities, publications, and consulting services. Blueprints and guidance that lead to continuous school improvement and prudent financial modeling will be provided.
While actively focusing on current needs, CSI will also vigorously research and prepare for anticipated changes in education paradigms that could impact member schools.
These activities will help us accomplish this goal:
- Conduct Educational Leadership Development Institutes for those interested in entering school leadership both from within and outside of the field of education.
- Conduct Principal Development Institutes for school leaders with less than ten years of experience.
- Conduct CEO/superintendent round tables for heads of schools overseeing multiple schools and/or multiple programs.
- Host multiple board leadership conferences and webinars.
So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
– Ephesians 4: 11-16
