Leverage Leadership: A Practical Guide to Building Exceptional Schools
Bambrick-Santoyo, Paul
Jossey-Bass, An Imprint of Wiley
Paul Bambrick-Santoyo (Managing Director of Uncommon Schools) shows leaders how they can raise their schools to greatness by following a core set of principles. These seven principles, or "levers," allow for consistent, transformational, and replicable growth. With intentional focus on these areas, leaders will leverage much more learning from the same amount of time investment. Fundamentally, each of these seven levers answers the core questions of school leadership: "What" should an effective leader do, and "how" and "when" should they do it. Aimed at all levels of school leadership, the book is for any principal, superintendent, or educator who wants to be a transformational leader. The book's companion DVD includes 30 video clips of top-tier leaders in action. These videos bring great schools to you, and support a deeper understanding of both the components of success and how it looks as a whole. There are also many helpful rubrics, extensive professional development tools, calendars, and templates. This book: (1) Explores the core principles of effective leadership; (2) Author's charter school, North Star Academy in Newark, New Jersey, received the highest possible award given by the U.S. Department of Education; the National Blue Ribbon; and (3) Includes an instructive DVD with 30 video clips to show how it looks in real life.
