  • most every day.

  • I'm with principles, assistant principals and people who want to be administrators, and everyone wants the same thing.

  • A successful school.

  • They want their students to be successful, their teachers to be successful.

  • But how do you go about this?

  • How do you have a successful school there?

  • So many mandates with which we must comply and we have to comply with them.

  • But that's not the end of it.

  • We have to go beyond that.

  • We have to go into performance.

  • We have to go into excellence.

  • We have to build an environment of success.

  • If you want a successful school, there's so many different pieces you could do as an administrator.

  • But I would suggest start with culture.

  • A culture of success begins with defining what culture is cultures, the beliefs and priorities that drive the thoughts and actions of the people at the school.

  • In the school administrator is the proprietor, the spokesperson, the keeper of those thoughts and beliefs.

  • He says what they are.

  • She does things that show people what they are, and eventually you hear the echoes of your words.

  • In the hall, you see people carrying out the thoughts and actions of the school and you've built a culture.

  • So how do you go about this?

  • Success is measured in a lot of different ways.

  • It's often measured in quantifiable pieces with graduation rate students and advanced courses, students who are doing well in advanced courses in college placement scores.

  • At our school, we had explosive growth in all of those areas, but we didn't start exclusively focusing on those areas.

  • We had hundreds of people who visited our school.

  • They wanted to come and find a nugget that they could take back, and they could do this particular action and that could be successful at their school.

  • But it wasn't about what it was about how we were doing, what we were doing.

  • It was about why we were doing what we were doing.

  • It was about culture.

  • So to build a culture of success, you need have a vision.

  • What is it that you're seeking to do is a school You need to have unity.

  • There has to be a coming together, a collaboration.

  • A vision of one person is just that, and there has to be empowerment.

  • People have to be able to do.

  • People have to be able to at those pieces together, they create a special culture of any organization.

  • But particularly at a school, I would suggest that the people of the school, the residents, the stakeholders, have to come together.

  • They have to answer a certain set of questions, beginning with whom I, because each individual has something to bring to the school.

  • Collectively, the group past answer.

  • Who are we?

  • And once those air answered, you could move to those next questions, which are really critical.

  • What is it that we wish to be and why?

  • And how did we become what we wish to be at our school?

  • We determine what we wanted to be.

  • We determine that we wanted to be a place of student success, and we focused on three Dublin's what they know, what they're able to do and what kind of people they're going to be.

  • That approach gave our school a significant focus on students and what they were doing.

  • It came together also with the vision, a piece of unity, and it was in two words one Morgan as Morgan County High School.

  • One Morgan was more than a motto.

  • It was a way of life.

  • One Morgan not only met coming together is one, but it also meant that the one individual one person is very important.

  • Their hopes, their dreams, their aspirations, the things that they're good at, they matter and their exceptional with vision and unity, we add empowerment and empowerment is Daniel Paint mentions in his book Dr Is That piece of motivation that really helps people be very successful in what they do.

  • When people have purpose and you give them autonomy, they'll work toward mastery.

  • And that's what happened in our school.

  • We had a genuine coming together of people who had a purpose of this one.

  • Morgan people had a vision success not just in one format or one pursuit, but many because of our focus on empowerment are students and teachers were able to do amazing things there remain able to do.

  • Extraordinary things were a very ordinary place, a very normal school of 1000 students, 50% on free or reduced lunch, 12% special needs students.

  • But we did amazing extraordinary things because people had the opportunity to do those things.

  • We build a skate park.

  • We started a drive that went national where We wrote 25,000 hand written letters all in one day to support to Shane Muscular Dystrophy Research.

  • We started a program for English language learners to support them in their efforts on a daily basis.

  • Every year we raise thousands of dollars to be able to take community Children to shop at Christmas time, buzz for themselves and for their family members.

  • We had a mock congress which taught our students not just by reading about it but doing about it on a three day basis, culminating a whole semester of study learning bills and learning to argue about things which really came in handy when we had the opportunity to lobby our actual state Legislature to pass a bill called Caleb's Law, which made it illegal for anyone in the state of Georgia to text while driving.

  • Our students had the power to act.

  • Our teachers empowered them.

  • And because of this, we did amazing things that our school, including this, which is an example of the extraordinary things that can happen when people come together with a common vision in unity.

  • I was at the tennis courts one afternoon, and two students, Tyler and Jared, walked up to me and they said Dark, got some we want to talk to you about I said Sure, they said, Do you know Nick Walker?

  • And I said, Sure, I know Nick Walker.

  • They said he's one of the best kids we have at School City and we got a lot of good kids.

  • They said, Dr, you know, he holds the door open for everybody at lunch every day at school I said, Yeah, Nick is great.

  • They said We want to do something special for Nick.

  • We want everybody to know what he means to our school and I said, What do you want to do?

  • And Tyler and Jared said, We want to have an assembly.

  • We're gonna bring all the students of the school together and all the teachers, and we want to give him a plaque in front of everyone.

  • Our school is kind of place where that wasn't so unusual.

  • So we called an assembly.

  • No one knew what it was for only a few people, and when we gather together, the cheerleaders went up into the stands and they got Nick and brought him down to the floor.

  • In the football players made a tunnel, and Nick was walked through the tunnel to the end of the gym, and there, at the end of the gym was a big chair, a throne because Nick was king for the day.

  • As as he sat in the chair, people came up one at a time.

  • There were songs.

  • There were testimonials, people talking about what Nick meant to our school in the head.

  • Dietitian Miss Rondo grabbed the microphone, and she said, Nick, everybody knows you hold the door open every day for people to come in.

  • But what they don't know is before you do that, you come back in the kitchen.

  • Where are ladies air cooking for everyone.

  • And you know every one of the lunch ladies by name, and you know their Children's names and you ask about him and you tell him how pretty they look that day.

  • Then next teacher grabbed the microphone.

  • Miss Holloway, when she did the most powerful thing I saw in 25 years of education, she said.

  • If Nick has given you a compliment this year, would you stand up?

  • We had 1000 students and 100 20 staff members in there and nearly everybody in the room stood because of one person who made such a big difference that our school one Morgan a culture of success brought together by this vision of what student success really looked like.

  • Well, we concluded the ceremony.

  • Tyler and Jared read their plaque in it.

  • Read to Nick Walker, Mr Morgan County, for showing all of the students and teachers here how we should treat each other its success.

  • It's not a test score, but we did well on all the test scores because we focused on the big pieces.

  • First we came together with the vision.

  • We empowered people to act, and we had success Thanks.
