The process of Becoming a Top 20 School consists of our individual journeys and the collective journey of each member of our school. The purpose of this journal is to support each staff member’s individual journey by explaining the Top 20 principles and practices and providing personal reflection questions to work toward accomplishing the goals of becoming a Top 20 school.
This journal is personalized with your school’s name at no additional cost.
