  • We use “Entrepreneurial Actions” to create a “Root Structure.” Embedding your Academy Roots so deep it makes it difficult for the school board and administrators to pull up. Like a tree and like a business, your academy has internal factors (controlled) and external (uncontrolled) threats that lead to your success or failure. Take control internally and minimize the risk of damage from outside threats! 7-Jul-10 SRocco@smithfield-ps.org 9 BACK to FLOW CHART Some Recommendations This is not about your job security. It is about your entire Business, FCS, or Technology department’s security. Create your own “added value” and “think long term” even if they (district administrators) can’t. – Look for Opportunities – Be Proactive – Be Aware of Threats – Be Innovative & Flexible – Be Patient – Don’t Get Discouraged – Be Perseverant 7-Jul-10 SRocco@smithfield-ps.org 10 BACK to FLOW CHARTPDF Created with deskPDF PDF Writer - Trial :: http://www.docudesk.com 3
  • Some Recommendations Electives are an “endangered species”, but with an academy you can develop them into a “branded” product. Most Importantly – Understand that nothing you do is fool proof. – There is no true security. – You are working to put the odds in your favor. 7-Jul-10 SRocco@smithfield-ps.org 11 BACK to FLOW CHART 3 Stages of Academy Development 1.
