GOCSD Membership Meeting Highlights

At our November Membership Meeting, our Strategic Plan was shared and an invitation extended to serve on our two new advisory teams.

  • The Advocacy Advisory Team will focus on how to advocate for public education at the local, state and national level.
  • The Meaningful Partnership Advisory Team will focus on creating meaningful partnership with university partners, affiliates, service providers and a financial management resource.

We need your help. If you are interested in serving on one of these new advisory teams, please submit your contact information.

At the meeting also we had the privilege of learning from Amy Hill, LCSW, Vice President for School Based Services Southwest from Burrell Center and Dr. Alison Roffers, Director for Counseling Services, Springfield Public Schools. Access the slidedeck below for some strategies on how school leaders can approach and manage the stress and challenges of their jobs and also initiate and provide supports and opportunities for staff members.
