Hilliard, Ann; Talbert Jackson, Barbara
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v4 n1 p1-8 Jan 2011
Many school leaders today are experiencing many challenges to ensure that their schools are successful. Since the passage of No Child Left Behind Act, school leaders have been faced with making sure that all students, regardless of language and/or background, are successful on the state assessment test. If students do not make AYP Annual Yearly Progress based on set standards, the school leader is viewed as not being effective. The school leader/administrator is at the front-line for their school's progress on a daily basis and just to name a few items, school safety, appropriate curriculum and accommodations for students, high quality instruction service to all students and utilizing technology to enhance instruction and management tasks (Lashway, 2003). This research paper will discuss aspects and trends in leadership in the following areas: leadership standards, leadership development, shared leadership, support for school leadership, change in mission, facility planning and designing, classroom configuration, use of school time, early programs, special programs, school transfer, use of technology and virtual schools.
