"No wind is favorable if we do not know into which port we are trying to sail" -Rev. Dale Turner
I hope you've had a fantastic summer break and were able to spend time with your family and recharge your batteries. September is always an exciting time of the school year, and this September should be no different with the challenges and opportunities that lay before you. I read a funny quote the other day about summer breaks and planning. The author commented that most people spend more time planning next summer's vacation than they do planning the rest of their lives. I know that's most likely not the case for your school and that you've measurable plans in place to guide your decision making for the school year. As Edward Hale shared, "If you have accomplished all that you have planned, you have not planned enough."
Our team at Halladay Education Group (HEG) has over three decades of experience helping school leaders to buy and sell, start, improve, and lead their schools more effectively. We understand the needs of independent schools globally and we'd like to be of assistance to you and your board.
