Limited resources and increasing responsibilities demand that school districts construct their administration in a thoughtful and efficient manner.  Boards of education must align leadership structures to ensure that students are afforded educational opportunity of the highest quality while finances are managed prudently. Engaging teachers, students, parents and the community in this process enables the board to put forth a vision that best reflects the values of all constituents.


CASDA’s faculty members combine vast administrative experience, insight into research-supported best practices and comprehensive knowledge of legal responsibilities.   Leadership and Management experts work with school boards, leaders and community members to develop a strategic plan that aligns district leadership with its mission and vision, resources and responsibilities.  CASDA emphasizes a thoughtful, transparent process in which the voices of all stakeholders are heard and valued. This process often includes:

  • Individual interviews with administrators and board members.

  • Thorough review of all relevant district documents.

  • Focus groups seeking input from teachers, students, parents and community members.

  • Public forums presenting and explaining any proposed changes in administrative structure.

  • Follow up planning and support to implement any administrative reorganization.



Ideal administrative structures reflect clear lines of authority, open channels of communication, balanced and realistic allocation of responsibility, strong engagement with the community and a profound dedication to the educative mission. CASDA’s Leadership and Management experts help school districts through the process of identifying and implementing an administrative structure that reflects the values of the community and meets the needs of students.
