scenario during the global pandemic which significantly affected and impacted everybody’s
life, the society is now gradually transitioning into the age of new normal which compels
utmost planning of every action and careful implementation of all undertakings concerned. It
had been a major lesson learned that for things not to go awry there should be sufficient
anticipation of anything that may emanate and happen without any sign or notice. Mankind had
been shocked with the pandemonium brought about by the corona virus and the entire humanity
had been greatly devastated. In order for such not to reoccur, there should be or there must be
a pro-active mindset that can prevent terrible things from happening or taking place. Matters
can be much better taken care of when there is efficient planning and mindful implementation
of all things.
The school leader’s significant role in the utmost planning and careful
implementation of face-to-face classes in the verge of new normal is a vital matter. It is
essential that every school leader be primarily involved in implementing face-to-face holding
of classes in the verge of the new normal. This is a must because there can be no other
individual much better equipped to implement such for the reason that every school leader
knows the immediate needs of the school as well as the people inside its academic community.
Therefore, among the significant role of school leaders in the utmost planning and careful
implementation of face-to-face classes in the verge of the new normal is to see to it that all
needs are met and all provisions necessary are obtained and allotted to whoever or whatever it
should be intended to or intended for. Also, every school leader must see to it that there is
really an effective and efficient scheme that will be strictly followed upon, during and beyond
the implementation of face-to-face holding of classes in the verge of the new normal. Every
school leader must guarantee or ensure that every facet involved or concerned with the
implementation of face-to-face holding of classes in the verge of the new normal be
accordingly or correspondingly considered so everything may turn out significantly suitable
and congruently appropriate.

in schools? As the entire academic society is now slowly or gradually transitioning or
switching into what used to be normal and usual, there are serious matters in store for learners
who are now coming back to school by batches. It will not take long anymore before these
previous home learners go back to becoming classroom learners. In order to ensure the safety
of these learners coming back to school, school leaders are making sure that everything is ready
and all things needed or required are at hand, within reach, accessible or available and nothing
is lacking, missing or left out. It is not only the full or complete safety that is in store for learners
as they now undergo face-to-face classes in schools, but also the full emotional support that
can be provided to them in order to assist them or aid them with their psycho-social needs and
concerns. On top of it all, the high assurance or guarantee of quality education that is constantly
accessible is in store foremost for these learners who are now coming back to school for the

How can school leaders help everyone in the academe adjust and cope up with the
implementation of face-to-face classes after two pandemic stricken school-years?
Adjustments are indeed expected to be massive at this time that there is an onset of
implementing once more what used to be usual as the holding of face-to-face classes in schools.
In order that adjustments will just be easy, there should be support extended to everyone or
everybody concerned specially students and parents. The kind of support system that the school
leader can provide to the people within the academe is indeed and in fact strong and enduring
for the reason that this kind of support is based on actual needs and demands as determined by
actual or situational scenarios. These facts are manifested in the way things are being ran within
the school be responsible and dedicated school leaders.
The school leader serves as a facilitator. In the implementation of face-to-face classes
in schools, school leaders act as facilitators who are supposed to or are expected to steer around
or maneuver all undertakings and endeavors. With the school leaders’ initiative and drive to
realistically implement all guidelines and directives which are mandatory in the
implementation of face-to-face classes in schools, it highly expected that goals will be attained
as accordingly set.
The school leader plays the role of key implementer. As a key implementer, every
school leader must work it out that all guidelines are followed strictly. It must be made sure
that every protocol be followed or complied with so that there will really be no possible
recurrence of the COVID – 19 outbreak. It is not just personal safety that should be well taken
care of in schools nowadays but also the safety of the general public.
The school leader monitors the implementation of face-to-face classes. It is big and
deep responsibility of every school leader to monitor all goings on transpiring at the height of
the implementation of face-to-face classes in schools amid the new normal age. All aspects
should be well-monitored so that there will really be no mishaps to be encountered.
The school leader influences all people within the academe so they may all become
vigilant and reliable when it comes to implementing face-to-face classes.
