Annual Report 2016-2017
The district launched this re-imagining initiative based on a concept outlined in the book, Shepherd Leadership (McCormick, Davenport, 2003). Shepherd leadership is a shared leadership style in which all members of the community share responsibility for moving the district forward in a way that is committed to service and relationships that demonstrate “what it looks like when the best happens.”
To recognize employees at the district who model the qualities of a Shepherd Leader, in 2008 the Shepherd Leadership Award was created. Any employee in the district may be nominated for the award by colleagues or students. The award recipients are then selected by a committee and are recognized in front of all district staff at the annual Faith Day event in November.
