The research is clear: principals make a difference in teacher and student success. So, what leadership development practices should be in place to assure that principals and aspiring principals in Title I districts and schools reach their full leadership potential so that students benefit? How can we assure that principal leadership development becomes the catalyst for impacting overall school improvement measures? How do we approach principal growth and professional learning using strengths-based strategies and practices? In this session, viewers will explore the answers to these questions using the ASCD Principal Leadership Development Framework, the ASCD Principal Continuum of Self-Reflection, and other ASCD leadership development tools successfully used with Title I district partners. Viewers will walk away armed with an increased repertoire of leadership development practices and action steps to use in their districts and schools.
