Do principals matter? As editorial in the New York Times last week answers the question with a loud and enthusiastic yes.. .especially when the principal has a SAM team, uses TimeTrack and builds a First Responder structure. The editorial focuses on a Georgia SAM principal, Clayborn Knight, and links to a video detailing his SAM work: http://goo.gl/4fmieL Take a look at the video and think about the way this SAM team makes sure Clayton’s instructional leadership, building teacher capacity, comes first. Consider how the school uses the SAM Communications Protocol to help the front office protect the principal’s time while meeting management demands.
