One of the most difficult responsibilities for a School Head is making staffing decisions, particularly when nonrenewals or reductions in force are necessary. If your school must entertain such a possibility, explore how to answer the following questions with care and empathy.
- Is this the right time for a reduction in force?
- What outcome do you want to achieve?
- Are there alternatives?
- What positions and divisions will be impacted by this decision?
- How do you control the public narrative?
- How do you support the faculty and staff who remain?
