Effective instructional leadership

Effective instructional leaders have high expectations of students and teachers, provide and participate in quality teacher learning, and use data to evaluate their impact on student progress.

Session Title: The Leader’s Atlas: A Guide for School and District Level Decision Makers
Why do some school leaders thrive while others struggle? Effective school leaders are committed to continuous improvement and lead high-functioning schools/districts that advance the academic progress of all students. 

While instructional leadership plays a significant role in facilitating, improving, and promoting students' academic progress, principals and central office leaders must recognize and assess their roles in the instructional process and be able to determine areas in need of improvement. This includes high expectations of students and teachers, and emphasis on high-leverage instruction, professional development, and collective teacher efficacy. 

In this highly engaging session, participants will explore the most contemporary leadership practices and attributes that create a high-achievement culture—from clear communication to empathy to strategic thinking. 

Participants will:

  • Explore Comparative Analysis Leadership Models
  • Be able to create a culture of “evidence over opinion” to ensure instructional programs contribute to increased student achievement
  • Learn to implement wide scale, academically intensive interventions
