This book does not belong on every administrator's bookshelf; it belongs open on his or her desk. Every chapter is filled with informative, inspiring and entertaining advice and wisdom delivered in Jim's conversational, engaging style. While Toolbook has no footnotes, it is well-researched and evidence based as Jim incorporates all that he has learned - and is still learning - from his 40+ years in education as well anecdotes, case studies and ample examples of successes and failures from colleagues willing to share their experiences. Above all, Jim is a coach. Whether a first year assistant principal or a grizzled veteran superintendent, you will be a better leader after reading this book; you will be well-equipped to make an enduring difference in your school, district, community and beyond. Dr. Glen "Max" McGee, Superintendent of Palo Alto (CA) School District and past Illinois State Superintendent of Schools ------------ "Practical is often neglected when discussing the 'how to's' of being a school principal. This is a phenomenal resource that every new principal or school leader should have at their disposal. If I only had this 'Toolbook' when I became a principal many problems could have been avoided." L. Earl Franks, CAE, Executive Director of the Alabama Association of Secondary School Principals ------------ "The School Principal's Toolbook by Jim Burgett is a refreshing combination of tried and true expertise and forward thinking for principals in today's complex and rapidly changing school environments. I found myself wishing this valuable resource had been available to me when I began as a middle school principal: forging connections with the school family, setting priorities and learning strategies for dealing with difficult conversations and situations would have been easier with this seasoned and straightforward guide. Reading Jim's book felt like having a candid conversation with a trusted mentor." Karen Bronson, Director of Professional Development for the School Administrators Association of New York State (SAANYS)
