Welcome to the MASSP Administrator Simulator, created by administrators for administrators, to provide real-life scenarios for school leaders to grow and learn from. During each simulation, the administrator is introduced to an employee or school situation in the form of a story problem. With each story problem, the administrator will be given a multiple-choice and prompted to choose one response to reflect how they would address the situation at each stage. After each choice, the story will continue to play out based on the administrator’s decision. When the story problem gets to the end, the administrator will reflect on the outcome and determine if it supports the action-steps essential for creating a healthy culture of accountability and high expectations.
To maximize the tool we have provided some ideas for different ways to use the tool and we have designed thought-provoking questions to consider before, during, and after the simulation exercise is complete. The series of questions will help you and your team reflect on current practices, identify areas of improvement, and help strengthen your ability to manage courageous conversations with all employees so that the environment maintains a balanced workload, is built on trust, demonstrates equity, and is transparent through accountability.
A school leader must demonstrate the ability to have courageous conversations with staff so that the environment maintains a balanced workload, is built on trust, demonstrates equity, and is transparent through accountability. This interactive course will walk you or your team through a simulation centered around decision making involving holding staff accountable for actions and performance. Through this process, you and your team will reflect on current practices, identify areas of improvement, and strengthen your ability to make decisions that are aligned with your school values.
In this course, you will:
- Engage in a multiple-choice simulation to make decisions about staff accountability,
- Reflect on the outcome to determine if it supports the action-steps essential for creating a healthy culture of accountability and high expectations, and
- Practice having courageous conversations with individuals to strengthen your abilities as leaders.
