Effective Instructional Leadership Act: Technical Assistance Manual for Instructional Leaders, and Training Program Providers. July 1, 2004 - June 30, 2006.
Kentucky Department of Education
The Kentucky Department of Education, Office of Leadership and School Improvement presents this revised and updated technical assistance manual for the 2004-2006 Effective Instructional Leadership Act (EILA) cycle to assist local educators as they implement EILA. The law was established to "encourage and require the maintenance and development of effective instructional leadership in the public schools of the Commonwealth and to recognize that principals with the assistance of assistant principals, supervisors of instruction, guidance counselors, and directors of special education have the primary responsibility for instructional leadership in the schools to which they are assigned." In 2002 there were several changes to the EILA. The most significant change was the expansion of the definition of "instructional leader" persons in positions for which the Education Professional Standards Board requires administrative certification. District personnel and independent providers are encouraged to develop leadership programs to meet the unique leadership needs of all district administrators in a manner that is both systemic and long term.
