14 Back-to-School Strategies for Staff Engagement

Topics: School Management

Get inspired as you head into a new school year with these back-to-school strategies straight from your principal peers in the field. During a recent #NAESPchat on Twitter, hosts Allyson Apsey and NAESP Center for Women in Leadership fellow Jessica Gomez led a discussion that included staff meeting name changes, inclusion activities, creating a culture of collaboration, and more. Here’s what they had to say.

Change the name, change the focus. How can we rename staff meetings to flip the script to a culture of collaboration?

What is one must-have component when setting up a welcoming physical (or virtual) meeting space?

Share an inclusion activity you use to set the stage for a culture of collaboration during your staff meetings.

What are some ways we can create opportunities to celebrate staff and help staff celebrate each other during meetings?
