Roles and responsibilities are crucial to building a school of excellence. You can’t weather the storm—let alone captain your ship—if your crew isn’t clear on what they should be doing and when.


That’s where developing a school org chart comes in handy. With a visual representation of the structure of your center on hand, you can clear up a lot of questions about what role each individual plays and who they should report to.


But that’s not all your org chart should do.


Because the leaders, administrators, and teachers of your center aren’t solely defined by where they fit into the hierarchy.


They’re human beings with their own needs and abilities, and those elements need to be factored in when designing the structure of your school.


Don’t get me wrong—hierarchy is important. But at its core, building an effective org chart is about understanding what fuels collaboration, efficiency, communication, and results.


In this week’s podcast episode, I’m exploring how to create your school org chart so that it facilitates the roles, responsibilities, and relationships within your center. 


Join me for a conversation about:


  • What a school org chart is
  • The 6 things leaders get wrong when designing their org charts
  • How to chart roles within your school
  • Questions to ask yourself when creating your org chart
