The Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium: A Standards-Based Approach to Strengthening Educational Leadership.
Murphy, Joseph; Shipman, Neil
The Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC), under the auspices of the Council of Chief State School Officers, and in cooperation with the National Policy Board for Educational Administration, developed a framework for redefining school leadership through standards for educational leaders. This paper describes the central elements of the ISLLC design for educational leadership and provides a preliminary look at systemic leadership in action, starting with a description of the infrastructure that supports the ISLLC's work. The changing environment surrounding schooling and postindustrial conceptions of education are considered. The third section of this paper translates the ISLLC understanding of educational leadership into a set of standards that can be used to strengthen school leadership throughout the educational system. The final section discusses early progress in connecting the standards for strategies for creating effective school leaders. The standards that emerged are for a school administrator who: (1) facilitates the development, implementation, and stewardship of learning shared by the school community; (2) promotes the success of all students through a school culture and instructional program conducive to student learning; (3) promotes the success of all through ensuring management, operations, and resources for a safe, efficient, and effective learning environment; (4) promotes the success of all students by acting with integrity, fairness, and in an ethical manner; and (5) promotes the success of all students by understanding, responding to, and influencing the larger political, social, economic, legal, and cultural context. Ways in which these standards are being implemented are discussed. (Contains 31 references.) (SLD)
