Re: Word of advice to HS directors mad about numbers
As I read this thread, I'm saddened by the finger pointing. Do I think that MS directors have to recruit to get kids into a MS program? Yes. Do they need to recruit to get kids to continue into HS? Yes. Should HS directors visit the MS's and build relationships? Absolutely. Should MS directors visit football games, summer band etc. to be a familiar face for their former kids? You betcha.
BUT...why can't MS and HS directors work together to find ways to recruit for the whole program rather than a grade level or 2 at a time? Why not look at things from the big picture instead of just breaking it into pieces and placing blame on someone else?
