Waters, Tim; Alsbury, Tom; Else, Dave; Reed, Greg
Mid-Continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL)
This article focuses on one aspect of the Iowa School Leadership System (ISLS), the Iowa Leadership Academy (ILA) Principal Center training component. The administrative professional development program will ultimately offer several additional training options, including the ILA Superintendent/School Board Center, ILA Futures Center, and the Executive Coaching Center. The ILA Principals Center is a three-year training program offered as entry-level training for practicing principals. The ILA Superintendent/School Board Center provides training to superintendent and school board teams. The ILA Futures Center will provide leaders with more advanced and individually designed training content and delivery focused on data analysis and preparing their schools and students for the future. Finally, the ILA Executive Coaching Center is a consultation service offered to individual in-service leaders and district teams working on school reform projects. The ISLS will provide a coherent, comprehensive administrative training program for aspiring and practicing school leaders that will improve their leadership skills, maximize state funds, and ultimately, lead to improved student achievement.
