Task 4: Identify Non-Financial Resources
Guideline: Non-financial resources often play a crucial role in accomplishing goals. Such resources include available staff time to devote to improvement efforts, time parents are able to give to school activities and/or be involved with their children's schoolwork, and capabilities that exist in the community that people are willing to share with the school. The principal's role is to nurture a school environment where people are willing to be involved and share their time.
In identifying these non-financial resources, the principal should keep in mind people will have abilities that might not be readily apparent. He or she should be observant of community members and extend his or her reach through contacts with others. As the principal identifies such resources, he or she should have a means of compiling and retaining contact information, as well as what is being asked of the others.
