SMALL GROUP BUDGET

COURSE # EAD-510
This artifact shows how small group projects encourage community involvement by supporting the programs and the events that they have at the school. This particular school project is from a community school where they sell there goods to the stakeholders and surrounding community to help support the students with their student fees. It gives each student an oportunity to demonstrate their skills as a head chef of a restaurant where they are selling their menu items for the day/week to various consumers and this raises funds for that student and other students as a whole group.

EAD 536: Strategic Leadership and Management in the Principalship
September 6, 2022
The team that I am apart of now values the community that it is a part of the school, and the staff has either graduated from the school, or worked at the school for ten years or more. For many of them, having a sense of tradition is important to them and the community is a part of this school’s tradition. So, when the new school year rolls around, it is not a question of do we have to, but when is it taking place. Each year it is tradition to have a block party out on the front lawn of the school with food, games, and fun. Now that we have so many opportunities to offer our students and the community, our business partners also line-up on the lawn and pitch in to barbeque for the students and their families that come to the annual block party.
At this block party it does not matter if the community members have students that attend our school, we want to get to know them and have them partake in the festivities. Through this time with the community, we can offer them resources and be able to network with them as to how they might become part of our school community. We have found out that many of our community members own businesses and are looking to hire our students who take part in our automotive program but did not know how to connect with the school. This block party brings many new things and opportunities for us to build relationships with our staff, students, and surrounding community members as well.
The executive principal/mentor show a strong ethical responsibility to ensuring that he is providing resources to our students and their families that align specifically to the mission and vision that he has for the school. Our mission is to graduate every student ready to succeed and within the structure of our school we have several resources available to the students to ensure that they can achieve that mission. We have what is called an academy structure where students are exposed to several career pathways that they choose, and it gives them the skills and resources to be career and or college ready after they graduate high school. It is this commitment to the mission that allows our students to be successful and those ethics that the community demands of the school is evident in the work that we do.
PSEL Standards 2 and 8 Implications for Future Use
The PSEL standards two and eight are easy for me to implicate into future use. It is what I see in the current school that I work, and it is what I believe in as a servant leader. I believe that everything that we do as educators should be student centered and ethically driven to yield results for the students that we serve. As a leader, it is my duty and due diligence to serve my students with the requirements of standards two and eight because it is also what I carry as my moral standards in what it means to provide a quality education for students. Our mission and vision should always be student centered and focus on their well-being.
