Seriously. We should give this some thought. Allow me to illustrate my point with a story.
This morning was our regular Tuesday staff meeting in the library before school. It started, like they always do, at 8:10. Curiously, our administrators were nowhere in sight. Turns out, our principal was late in getting to school, and didn't actually arrive until about 8:30. At that point, she made an announcement that the meeting was canceled. This, of course, was news to the entire staff, as we were actively in the meeting. The woman who was presenting (not a teacher at our school) just kept on going, and it was one of the best morning meetings we've ever had. She gave us great resources, communicated lots of useful information, and even ended early.
Food for thought: we've got to lose several positions at my school, and things seem to work better when administrators aren't around. I'm just saying...
