Today, school administrators face many challenges. These include pressures to increase all students' achievement in core content areas and to prepare students to be technology literate. In addition to these academic needs, principals are concerned for the security and safety of their students and ultimately seek to provide a positive school climate conducive to learning. Administrators in Michigan have pulled together in a statewide effort to meet these challenges with the help of technology. Their connecting point is a collaborative leadership development program called LEADing the Future (LTF), funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In 2002, the LTF grant team set out to train at least 80% of the administrators in the state (approximately 4,000) to use a variety of technologies with specific emphasis on four goals aligned with ISTE's National Educational Technology Standards for Administrators. This article describes the implementation and the outcomes of the LTF program in Michigan. (Contains 4 resources.)
