Leading School Change: 9 Strategies to Bring Everybody on Board

1. Identify the Change

  • Whitaker starts by introducing three levels of change. The easiest is Procedural Change. These are simple changes that change procedures like how to take attendance or run a fire drill. These changes are often simple enough to be put in place with a memo. Beware, however, they can be big deals if they are not handled with care. Next comes Structural Change. This could be something like changing the length of periods, increasing class size, or adopting a new textbook. The final, most important, and most difficult change is Cultural Change. This requires changes in behavior and how we do things. Important changes will impact the school culture. As you set your goals and plan for changes, recognize which type(s) you need to make.
