Opportunities for School Secretaries

secretary cohortSchool secretaries are key to making sure that a school's day-to-day operations run smoothly, that students and families feel welcome, and that staff members have the information they need.

School Secretary Professional Development Academy

The School Secretary Professional Development Academy consists of a series of half-day sessions facilitated by district office subject matter experts. Sessions focus on engagement, self-care and wellness, and networking opportunities. Secretaries will also explore how to make the most of City Schools’ administrative systems.

Leading from the Secretary’s Seat

This leadership development opportunity is anchored in customer service and uses the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) self-awareness tool. Leading from the Secretary’s Seat is designed to strengthen service-orientation, conflict management, and communication skills for up to 25 secretaries. As a result of participating in this two-session cohort, secretaries will:

  • Gain insight into their preferences and triggers to ultimately lead with a strong customer service orientation;
  • Deepen their understanding of their orientation to conflict and practice how to address conflict; and 
  • Strengthen their capacity to apply their self-awareness skills to communicate and collaborate more clearly and effectively.

The application process for the most recent cohort is now closed. Check back for future cohort opportunities.
