If you’ve never been a part of a school action plan that lacked substance, then this episode is probably not for you. However, if you’ve been a part of, or better yet, you’ve created a vague school action plan, then this is YOUR episode. I have no reservations telling you that I’ve had vagueness in school action plans. Although if you would have asked me at the time, I would have told you it was as good as gold. But if we can be honest and take the blinders off, then we will see that we are more talk than action.
Thankfully, my guest today is Chris Briggs-Hale, and he, too, has created vague school action plans. More importantly, he recognized it and fixed it. Today Chris joins Anchored in Education to discuss his experienes and gives us tips on how to avoid similar mistakes.
