[posted from Public Education Network newsletter]


Over the past two years, the Institute for Educational Leadership (IEL) worked with the Laboratory for Student Success at Temple University (LSS) to build and support a new leadership network, the “School Leadership Learning Community” (SLLC). It is comprised of the first 24 grantees the U.S. Department of Education chose to implement professional development programs for principals in high-need districts. The SLLC Network convened several times for to share lessons learned, challenges, strategies, and promising practices. These meetings produced three quality publications containing insights about preparing and supporting school leaders: (1) Preparing Leaders for Rural Schools: Practice and Policy Considerations; (2) Preparing and Supporting Diverse, Culturally Competent Leaders: Practice and Policy Considerations; (3) and Preparing and Supporting School Leaders: The Importance of Assessment and Evaluation. Copies of the briefs are available either by download for free at the link below:
