Leading in the Manner of Friends at Quaker Schools [day 1]
Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Time: 9:00 PM
Location: Pendle Hill Conference Center
Administrative teams are invited to come together for renewal and reflection. Collaborate with seasoned Friends school leaders to explore common topics such as responding to crises, supervising, or leading and managing change “in the manner of Friends” – in other words, from the perspective of the unique challenges and opportunities available to leaders of Friends schools. Enjoy the relaxing environment of Pendle Hill (Wallingford, PA) in summer – walking trails, healthy and locally sourced food, and collegiality.
Workshop participants will:
- Be reminded of the basic tenets of Friends education and have opportunities to apply those tenets to real-life situations;
- Explore how leading a Friends school is different from leading a non-Friends school, both in terms of the expectations of constituents and the tools available to Friends educators;
- Be exposed to research on best practices and have opportunities to apply those findings to real-life situations;
- Come away with a “toolkit” and explicit guidelines that participants can take back to their schools with them.
