“Six Months Later”

In March 2019, Columbus City Schools welcomed Dr. Talisa Dixon as the 21st Superintendent and Chief Executive Officer of Ohio's largest school district. Starting on her first day, she launched the "Mapping our Success 100 Day Entry Plan" to spotlight the first 100 days of her administration and to emphasize an extensive outreach effort to hear from stakeholders - students, staff, families, partners, and community - about the future of the District. More than six months into her term she returns to the Breaker Society podcast to share the challenges and successes of her experiences. In this episode, we delve into how to approach changing the culture and building a strategy for the future. We talk about leadership and what drives Dr. Dixon in her daily pursuit to be a model urban school district nationwide.
