This skills packet is part of the North Carolina Helping Education in Low-Performing Schools program. This initiative helps educators establish ties with technical-assistance partners who can facilitate school-improvement efforts. The skills packet, which was designed to be delivered by a skilled trainer, focuses on leadership development. Its four sections: (1) Instructional Leader; (2) Planning; (3) Site-Based Management and Other Education Reform Programs, and (4) Communication, which contains activities that are intended to help participants identify instructional leadership styles, describe the characteristics of an effective leader, design and communicate a vision and mission, utilize appropriate planning tools and practices, provide direction in planning for student achievement, implement and institutionalize an effective site-based management program, and communicate with a variety of audiences. Each activity is formatted the same way. Following the activity number and name, a chart details the time needed to carry out the activity, the purpose of the activity, the setting for the activity, the materials and equipment that are needed, and a synopsis of the intended results. The activities are geared primarily for small groups and require a high degree of participation. It is hoped that participants will learn the intricacies of partnerships and how alliances can best be used for school improvement. (RJM)
