Make Your Resolutions Reality

How’s your list coming?

Wasn’t it just a few days ago when we all were relishing in fresh beginnings and excitement of things to come? Reflecting upon the past and making plans for the future?

So how’s your list coming?

Educational planning is an absolute necessity. It accounts for the important issues, conditions, constraints, and factors that impact our business. Importantly, it eliminates trial-and-error, reduces chances of failure and ensures success.

One area that demands greater planning is school safety. In these desperate and violent times, it is our job as educational leaders to protect our students – to send them home safely at the end of the day. This starts with adequate funding, enhanced communication, and highly effective plans that are reviewed and updated regularly based on new information and scenarios.

In the adjacent video, former FBI agent Jeff Franks outlines some key areas to consider when developing your plan. Take a look and start making your resolutions reality today.
