School Management

SIL_J1862_Internal_673x200px_0041_class2_ 0069

Silkwood School has an innovative management system that differs from the traditional model of Principal leadership. Known as the Distributed Leadership Model, our qualified team of educators, administrators, IT professionals and site crew  lead the school with the School Facilitator who reports directly to the School Board.

The Facilitator is responsible for the vision and strategic plan of the School. Working alongside the school managers, the Facilitator creates teams to address challenges, develops and improves policies, systems and progress the School with its strategic goals and vision.

For more information about Silkwood’s Distributed Leadership Model please download our Silkwood’s Distributed Leadership Model.
