Principals have jobs that are rapidly changing and they have little control over the heart of the school...what is being taught and how and by whom. Even principals who have developed and support healthy, rich, nurturing, learning environments, know that they are chasing a moving target and tomorrow it might be different.

Since the implementation process is well underway, what can we do to be the transformers? How can we use this debilitating opportunity to actually improve our principals and teachers? This is worth doing. If we begin a new process and simply skim over it without honoring its value, its introduction may be accepted, but not attended to. We have to push against our institutional habit of clinging to the old ways.

If we approach this evaluation process as a priority and with fidelity, we have the real opportunity to develop our building leaders.
