From the ED 8.18.15

Most of you are welcoming back faculty, staff, students, and parents (new and returning) during this time of change at your school. It is very exciting, but can also be very tiring at the same time. The following article about change was sent to me by your colleague, and MISBO Board Vice-Chair, Philip Cork, Saint Andrew’s School, Boca Raton, FL. It is a quick read and very applicable to our independent schools.

9 Tips For Creating A Positive Change In Your Culture

Speaking of change, there has been much discussion about the proposed changes to the Federal Wage & Hour regulations. Debra Wilson, Legal Counsel, NAIS has just published a paper with a very comprehensive and important update on this subject. While these are currently just proposed changes, I would encourage you to read her paper and stay informed on this subject which will likely have an impact on your school.

Another one of your colleagues, Dr. David Hanson, CFO, Phillips Exeter Academy, New Hampshire writes a great article for NAIS about governance which you can find below.

What Independent Schools Can Teach Higher Education on Governance by David Hanson

I know you are busy, but I believe that these are important topics for you and your schools and they are all relatively short and right on point. I hope you find them helpful.

Sincerely,
Marc
