(Instructions, and Rubric for Submission – W2LO2, W2LO3, CLO1, CLO2)
This assignment has three components. The components include a memo, documentation, and a reflection. Please review the rubric. Use all three components of the assignment to influence the opinion of the grader.
I. Memo #1:
You will assume the role of a new hypothetical principal at a campus as you respond to the issues found in the letter of concern by the hypothetical superintendent. It is found in the resource packet. In this activity, the candidate will prepare a four-paragraph written memo that addresses the following prescribed actions:
a) Create and share a new vision statement for the Agricultural Science Program identified in the resource packet. It should be aligned with the following campus vision statement – “IN COLLABORATION WITH OUR SCHOOL COMMUNITY, WE TEACH ALL THE STUDENTS OF ALL THE PEOPLE DOING OUR BEST TO REACH EVERY STUDENT EVERY DAY”;
b) Describe and share with the superintendent the specific steps taken to develop, articulate, implement and steward a new vision statement for the identified program;
c) Share who was involved, sample activities conducted, how progress toward establishing the programs vision will be tracked, and how the program’s vision is aligned to the campus vision statement.
Special note: While preparing the simulated memo and attachments, you must address the superintendent directives described above. When addressing the superintendent directives, you will use the Stage 1 “BUILDING BLOCKS” found below to frame your memo. Use each building block as the topic for one paragraph.
Stage 1 Building Blocks
a) modeled a collaborative approach – paragraph one;
b) established expectations and built relationships – paragraph two;
c) defined roles and shared responsibilities – paragraph three;
d) aligned strategic priorities – paragraph four.
Additionally, you are expected to attach simulated documentation that supports your four-paragraph memo to the superintendent. (Be creative!) The documentation is limited to two (2) additional pages. Documentation examples include:
· Agendas from meetings
· Pictures from meeting
· Thank you notes
· News Articles
· List of those invited/attended
· Calendar of upcoming events
