Stage Three: Norming
In the Norming stage, your team is working together to start up and run the teacher-powered school you designed and got approved in the Storming stage. Your team will transition from the design team (which designed the school) to the school leadership team (which is responsible for running the school).
Norming stage steps include:
Selecting, retaining, and dismissing colleagues, staff, and leaders; team-building resources.
Compelling team members to take ownership of the shared purpose.
Ensuring teams understand how the evaluation process works and the reasons for its design; mentoring, coaching, and evaluation skills.
Dispositions and practices that work in collaborative leadership environments.
Resources for inquiry, discussion, improvement, and reporting.
Challenges to expect when pioneering a teacher-powered school in your area.
