LISTEN TO THE PODCASTS
Lesson Two: Design Standards to Address Leadership Needs of Individual District Contexts.
Found in the ISLLC standards are several practices that foster effective leadership; administrators must tailor these standards to assure leader expectations are appropriate and align with capabilities.
Audio comments from Sandra Lochhead-Price
Lesson Three: Follow a Well-Conceived and Collaborative Process to Develop/ Adapt Standards and Keep them Relevant.
States must reference national principal standards to assure their school leader concept matches professional standards. Districts must reference state standards to assure principal expectations are sustained despite contextual changes. This increases the likelihood that all education stakeholders share a common vision for school leaders.
Audio comments from Pamela Shetley
Lesson Four: Ensure Leadership Standards Drive Each Component of the Leadership Pipeline.
If professional standards drive every facet of the leadership career continuum, then those involved in the pipeline will clearly understand how to foster and support effective leadership.
Audio comments from Tricia McManus
Lesson Six: Focus the Work of Principal Supervisors on Development and Evaluation.
Principal supervisors are key because they evaluate principals. The responsibilities for supervisors must be clear and well-understood, so their feedback can plausibly inform school leaders about development needs.
Audio comments from Pamela Shetley
READ MORE ABOUT STRUCTURING LEADERSHIP SUPPORT
Enhancing Capacity for Standards-Based Leadership Evaluation, addresses important dimensions of the educational leadership career pipeline that ensure effective evaluation. Based on a review of the standards and evaluation work of large urban and metropolitan districts across the country, the report shares six key lessons and their implications for enhancing standards-based leadership evaluation work.
Each lesson validates the need for a strong, ongoing, and reciprocal relationship between the state and district in order to build, implement, and maintain strong evaluation and support systems that will result in the highest levels of effective leadership, rigorous instruction, and student learning.
BUILDING THE PRINCIPAL PIPELINE
In 2011, the Wallace Foundation launched the Principal Pipeline Initiative in six urban school districts. In addition to student achievement outcomes, the foundation seeks data about what is needed to support principals across the career continuum, especially leaders who serve high needs areas, and whether districts can create pipelines that produce a large number of highly-qualified principals.
