As citizens and educators, we want ALL students to perform to the highest level. Yet, in schools and school systems across the nation, instructional leaders face chronic gaps in student achievement. In the upcoming one-day institute "How to Create a Results-focused Learning Environment" (March 31, 2016 in Seattle), experts from the Center for Educational Leadership (CEL) will work with central office and school leaders to help them take the critical actions that drive results for all students.
Research has consistently shown that after teachers, principals have the most impact on student achievement when it comes to in-school factors. One of the most significant roles – and biggest challenges – of a school leader is to create and maintain a results-focused learning environment.
This one-day institute will give central office and school leaders the background and tools to take the critical actions to establish a results-focused learning environment to address achievement gaps. Participants will be introduced to the 4 Dimensions of Instructional Leadership™ as a research-based framework to propel principal practice and create an action plan for the high-leverage next steps teams can take before the next school year.
The Center for Educational Leadership (CEL) has been training school and central office leaders in instructional leadership to eliminate achievement gaps for many years. Currently, CEL is providing group training, one-on-one coaching and PLC support for a large-scale research study funded by the U.S. Department of Education examining the impact of professional development on principals in eight districts around the country.
