Facilitating Buy-In for New Initiatives

by Andi Atchison on August 2, 2018

Effectively Creating a Culture of High Expectations

Implementing district-wide changes can affect your day-to-day whether you are an administrator, principal, or teacher. When soliciting buy-in for new initiatives, educators should take specific steps to get everyone involved in the process.

High expectations passed down from administrators set the tone for how well a district responds to changes. Principals and teachers may be asked to partake in the decision-making process, support different programs, and embrace new resources. Leadership can lead by example when it comes to implementing new initiatives.

Lee’s Summit R-7 School District in Missouri led a discussion in a national webinar about using a new computer-based assessment tool. District leaders went over the steps they took when facilitating buy-in for the new initiatives. Their steps included:

  • program initiation;
  • awareness and research;
  • trial and consideration;
  • training and implementation; and
  • analyzing results

For educational leaders looking to solicit buy-in for new initiatives, this webinar covers each step in detail as well as questions to ask to get schools involved in the process. Download a copy of the webinar’s full slide deck to prepare and facilitate buy-in for new initiatives in your district.
