    Dear Thomas Johnson Middle School Community, Parents and Staff,

     

    Promotions and leadership changes in our school houses and central offices are a natural part of the reorganization of our school system. 

     

    PGCPS would like to get your input on a community questionnaire, “School Leadership Skills and Characteristics Community Input.” The purpose of this questionnaire is to gather your best thinking. In essence, what do you think are the strongest attributes and necessary skills a principal of this unique school community should possess? This will in turn help us develop a leadership profile for your school and will inform the overall decision making process for selecting an instructional leader. The data collected will serve as data points in identifying principal candidates who are most suited to meet the needs of your school community. 

     

    Your principal or his/her designee will work with the Office of Talent Development and Area office staff to facilitate the distribution and collection of the questionnaire.  A link to Survey Monkey (our data gathering tool) is provided below and available from your principal or his/her designee. Please take 5-10 minutes to complete the questionnaire in order to provide us with your opinion. We are asking that all input be provided by midnight, on Friday, March 9, 2018. Survey Monkey will not be accessible after this time.  Special Note: If you do not have access to a computer, please contact your school’s principal or his/her designee for assistance.  

     

    In addition to the completing the survey, you will have the opportunity to share your thoughts at a community meeting on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. at Thomas Johnson Middle School. We encourage your participation in this interactive forum, and we appreciate your support, insight and flexibility in completing the questionnaire in a timely manner.  Please feel free to provide any additional insight and information that you think will be helpful in identifying the characteristics and attributes of leadership in your building.  If you have more detailed input, the survey provides an extended area for you to provide any additional comments, thoughts or information.  If you would like to include any additional information outside of this survey to be included for consideration, please feel free to email talent.development@pgcps.org.  

     

    We truly appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your thoughts and the Office of Talent Development will provide the school principal or his/her designee with a completed School Leadership Profile once the data has been compiled from school community input.

      

    Your immediate attention to this matter is greatly appreciated.  Should you have any questions, please contact your school directly.

     

    Thank you,

    The Office of Talent Development
