DeSoto Central High School was the setting for Administrative Staff Development, an event that marks the beginning of a new school year.
The theme of the meeting was “Everything Comes Down to Leadership,” a quote from Essential Truths for Principals by Danny Steele and Todd Whitaker. Administrators read this book during the summer.
Superintendent Cory Uselton opened the meeting with the district address, recapping significant academic and athletic accomplishments of the district of the past year, and challenging leaders to “Raise the Bar” in the 2019-2020 school year.
Fifteen minute concurrent sessions soon got underway where administrators were updated on finance, nutrition, federal programs, English learner policies, human resource subjects, athletics, technology, safety and security, testing, discipline, records management, guidelines for purchasing, ways to conserve energy, and positive behavior techniques.
