About the eBook

Tried and true strategies every principal can implement

From a turnaround principal who has been there, I′m in the Principal′s Seat, Now What? outlines clear strategies to create a positive, collaborative, and all-inclusive school environment.

Dr. Allan Bonilla, former Principal of the Year in the nation′s fourth largest school district, shares experiences from his 40-year career in education to guide and encourage current and aspiring principals. Featuring tools such as checklists, rubrics, and templates, the book offers true-life stories, examples, and interviews with award-winning "turnaround" principals. The author shifts attention from tasks that seem important to strategies that produce measurable results by focusing on topics such as:

  • Delegation and collaboration
  • Meeting the needs of the at-risk student
  • Improving attendance and student achievement
  • Being a true visible leader
  • Incorporating successful business practices
  • Celebrating success, and
  • Adopting a coaching mindset

Far from being a standalone anecdote for success that hinges on one unique personality, this relevant guide will help launch your own sustainable turnaround story.

"Bonilla recognizes that culture matters—a lot—and he offers specific strategies to help everyone in a school learn and grow."
—Thomas R. Hoerr, Author and Columnist
Head of the New City School, St. Louis, MO

"This book provides a practical guide for building a school on the vision that each student matters. Given the right organizational structure and climate, teachers will take ownership of problems, will implement proven, practical solutions, and will grow from good to great when they are supported by their principals."
—Gene Bottoms, SREB Senior Vice President
Founder and Director, High Schools That Work
