Making Leadership Happen. The SREB Model for Leadership Development.
Crews, Alton C.; Weakley, Sonya
As states transfer more responsibility for education decisions to local school systems, effective leadership at the local level is essential. This report presents the Southern Regional Educational Board (SREB) model for leadership development, as practiced by the SREB Leadership Academy. Since 1991, teams from 12 school systems in the southern United States were selected to attend a series of 3-day training sessions each year over a period of 4 years. The leadership-development model is built on four strategies: working on real-world goals; developing a personal plan for professional development; coaching and mentoring; and building community collaboration. Course content focuses on the areas of planning, systems design, group dynamics, and enrichment. Appendices contain lists of team participants, and information on SREB program evaluation and project administrators. (LMI)
