Re: Literally about to submit a resignation letter
...I agree...very difficult to do mid-term (although possible). I would probably hang on as best I could until Christmas Break. Then when the kids come back in January, do a "soft" reboot and start doing it then. My rationale is that between now and Christmas Break, you've also got Thanksgiving Break, and a lot of other holiday things going on that will make the normal school routine less and less frequent, and there wouldn't be enough time to teach and reinforce the new policies. The other reason is that with a lot of kids these days, more than 3 days with no school their brains hit the "clear" button, and when they come back in January teachers are doing a significant amount of review for the first two weeks back. Perfect time to implement a new procedure program.
