Special To Welcome Home
The North East ISD Administrative Training Program graduated 20 future leaders at the August Regular Board Meeting on August 8. Executive directors of school administration Joe Reasons, Jane Jensen, and Bill Boyd spent countless hours with this group of administrative interns, as part of the training program.
The graduates spent the year learning from each other, and learning from the principals in their schools. This real-world setting allowed them to explore a variety of practical and philosophical topics several times a month. Most importantly, these graduates took the time to hear from District administrators to learn the “North East” way, and from outside consultants, who have spoken on topics such as stress management and developing individual leadership styles.
All the administrative interns work on the important project of creating the NEISD Administrative Calendar. Each intern was called up to receive their Certificate of Achievement. These young educators are proof that NEISD will be in good hands in the future.
For the 2016-2017 school year, the District will be working with approximately 37 new interns and NEISD is looking forward to presenting them to the Board of Trustees next month.
