The new joint Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) and the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) standards, now recognized as the Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC) standards, are at your fingertips, ready to be applied by principals as well as administrator preparation programmes.
This is first book to make the connection between the new standards and the principal's leadership role in creating and sustaining a school's culture and values. Its simple, consistent format includes:
- Meeting the standards for the learning community
- Creating, developing, and implementing school vision and culture
- Organizing learning community resources
- Establishing collaborative partnerships within the school community
- Dealing with the dilemmas, politics, and professional development in school communities
- Transforming the learning community
In addition to a thorough discussion of the new standards, each chapter includes easy-to-use learning tools that include "Activities for Professional Development" and reflective questions to help individuals, groups, or classes get the most from the book's practical, insightful, and easy-to-read format. Principal Leadership is a must-read for current and future school leaders who recognize the increasing complexity of the principal's role in our ever-changing, complicated world.
"Certification, assessment, and standards for school principals are here to stay. Elaine Wilmore takes a fresh and innovative look at how standards for school administration are tied to the very core of educational leadership. A must read for all aspiring and practicing school leaders. Bravo!"
"This book informs school leaders how they can carry out critical leadership responsibilities that will lead to ever higher levels of academic achievement for all students."
"In the process of developing a guide for school leaders using the ELCC standards, it was a great relief to come across your wonderful book, which we have relied on rather extensively. Thank you for your tremendous contribution to the literature on school leadership and for helping practitioners like me to interpret and apply the ELCC standards."
