The GLOBAL Group has been afforded the opportunity to work on two consequential projects with the leadership and Board of the International Christian School of Budapest (www.icsbudapest.org) over the last two years.
by Sofia Amador-Brenes, EdD - International Accreditation has gained relevance in a world that offers countless opportunities for students to attend educational institutions worldwide. My over 10 years of experience in accreditation teams have allowed me to participate in a variety of schools with different organizational and cultural backgrounds. All of them, regardless of their nature, look for the common goal of continuous improvement and international recognition.
by Sofia Amador-Brenes, EdD - Definition: Concurrent instruction is a term used to describe a hybrid teaching & learning approach where one teacher delivers instruction to a group of in-person students and a group of remote students simultaneously.
by Dr. Toby A. Travis - Teachers are the very essence of a school. If school leaders want high-quality programs with substance and measurable results, they need to look no further than investing in their faculty and staff development. The Return on Investment (ROI) for competitive compensation packages and personalized quality professional development for teachers is significant.
The GLOBAL School Consulting Group has a commitment to offer world class consulting and training through our Consultants, and to introduce, endorse, and promote organizations and businesses that provide premier products and services. Although the Partner concept was instituted recently, we have already had the opportunity to recommend Partners to client and prospective client schools. GLOBAL was formed with a goal of building synergy for the business of each affiliate, and the Partner affiliation builds on that concept which is rapidly becoming a reality!

The developing, managing, and diligent implementation of the budget is the single most vital, and yet nearly invisible, means by which school leaders build trust.

A school leader today is supposed to act as an entrepreneur and a person of vision, able to inspire, empower, and motivate his staff under the auspices of a shared mission statement that fosters common goals for the entire community (Engels, Hotton, Devos, Bouckenooghe, & Aelterman, 2008).
