Standards for School Leaders Get New Thumbs Up
Olson, Lynn
Education Week, v27 n25 p1, 14 Feb 2008
A coalition of education groups came together in the mid-1990s to draft model standards for school leaders that would refocus the profession on student learning. Since then, the resulting Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium standards have been used or adapted by more than 40 states to guide their own preparation, licensure, and evaluation programs for principals and superintendents. Now, the standards have been revised for the first time since they were initially adopted in 1996. And the big news is how little has changed. According to Lois Adams-Rodgers, the deputy executive director of the Washington-based Council of Chief State School Officers, the general footprint--the standards that were in place, with some wording changes--were pretty good, as far as creating a policy framework.
