TKA administrator completes training
ORANGEBURG – South Carolina Independent School Association Executive Director Larry Watt announced that David Wolff, head of school at The King’s Academy, Florence, recently completed the two-day SCISA Heads’ Institute.
“This is one of the many programs we offer our member-schools, and it gives new school administrators the tools necessary to drive an independent school successfully through a year of operation,” Watt said. The institute offered training in a variety of tasks performed by heads of school on a daily basis.
Topics such as leadership, time management, development, curriculum, athletics, enrollment legal requirements, risk management, organization stress, marketing, finances, facilities, faculty evaluations, and parent education were presented and discussed. “We appreciate The King’s Academy’s participation in our special training course for school heads, and we wish Mr. Wolff every success as the head of school in the coming year,” Watt said.
The South Carolina Independent School Association is a non-profit, voluntary association of over 120 independent schools serving more than 37,000 teachers and students. Founded in 1965, the State of South Carolina incorporated SCISA as an exclusively educational organization with the responsibilities of establishing accreditation standards, coordinating academic and athletic competition and providing professional development for member organizations.
