The University of Washington Center for Educational Leadership (CEL) has released an updated version of the Principal Support Framework. Representing the best thinking of educators from across the country, the framework describes key actions of central offices that effectively support principals as instructional leaders.
Version 2.0 continues its focus on how central office leaders can best support principal success, but includes critical updates including:
Clear and measurable vision statements
Guiding questions to support further action
Guidance on building strategic partnerships with principals
Similar to version one, this version calls out three areas of action for central office leaders to support principals:
Clarity on their role and what is expected of them on a day-to-day basis.
Professional development that is personalized, differentiated and typically self-initiated.
Strategic relationships with central office staff that make it easy for them to access and use district resources based on school need.
