A few vocal constituents can give the impression that they reflect the opinions of the entire community, often inaccurately. This can lead to rumors driving major decisions that cost schools goodwill, quality, families, money, and more.
Have you heard statements like these in the halls or your conference rooms?
- “Parents would rebel if we let that teacher go.”
- “Kids really learn best when I…”
- “Applicants are deciding not to enroll because of our facilities – we need a brand new building, and soon.”
- “Our community can’t afford another tuition raise in this economy.”
- “Our lower school parents want us to offer more languages.”
- “Our alumni all come back and tell us what a great job we did.”
- “Our attrition rate has risen, but that’s just because of changing demographics and the recession.”
In ISM’s work with thousands of schools across the country, we often hear statements like these that are assumed to be “facts,” but that when tested, turn out to be exaggerated or false. Join us in this Webinar to get an understanding of the data you need, how to get it, and the most common and costly assumptions that are mistakenly made by schools.
This Webinar is designed for Heads, academic administrators, and Department Chairs.
Total run time is 60 minutes. The presentation will run approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes designated for Q&A.
