A Reflection Of The First Year From KASB Leadership Services Consultant, Gary Sechrist (Intended Consequences #7)
Join Gary Sechrist as he reflects upon his first year in Leadership Services (http://www.kasb.org/wcm/Leadership_Services/wcm/_LS/Leadership_Intro.aspx?hkey=547c534f-1aba-4b8c-a8ba-a60f3c135dbe) as a consultant for the Kansas Association of School Boards (http://www.kasb.org/). Gary not only notes that he has logged almost 32,000 miles while visiting 159 districts, but has a new found respect for Kansas superintendents and their local boards. The perseverance of the Great 8 (the high functioning team of seven board members and the superintendent) to strive to improve their districts for the students and staff was definitely impressive.(http://remarkablechatter.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/KASB-Logo_PMS-0151_Leadership-Services-300x200.jpg) The past year has also allowed Gary to assist local boards select their district goals, assist with numerous superintendent searches and assist with local challenges. He not only witnessed the excitement of hiring the next superintendent, but also witnessed the lows of a district wondering if they would be able to put a football team on the field. With all of the high and lows Gary still found it refreshing and enlightening to observe local boards and superintendents improve their local situations in less than desirable financial circumstances.

Balanced Leadership (Intended Consequences #5)
(http://remarkablechatter.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/Untitled-11.png) This week my guests are Amy Wagoner and Marci Shearon, consultants for ESSDACK, an educational service center in Hutchinson. The Kansas Association of School Boards is a great believer of the research by the Mid-Continent Research for Education and Learning otherwise known as McRel. KASB uses this research for many of our learning initiatives such as the McRel Principal and Superintendent Evaluation process…and; as required of the waiver for added accountability in teacher evaluations; many districts are using the McRel Teacher evaluation process. The KASB facilitated boardsmanship meetings; district goal setting sessions, district strategic planning, and new board member trainings are heavily slanted towards McRel research. Many educators are familiar with the “Classroom Strategies that Works” from Robert Marzano, the McRel 9. Amy and Marci have conducted many successful trainings and ongoing learning opportunities using the McRel 9. KASB has been conducting a very successful series for leading change which are conducted for building and district level administrators titled “Balanced Leadership.” Marci and Amy have participated in this training and I am anxious to hear their insights. The Kansas Association of School Boards is planning on conducting this series of training again this year. Dr. Brian Jordan and Dr. Doug Moeckel are the capable facilitators of this series. If you have interest in being part of the Balanced leadership training this year, Please call KASB (http://www.kasb.org) to inquire about the closest locations and dates for your participation.
