ESSA Implementation: Developing Effective School Principals

Leadership is second only to the quality of teaching in improving student achievement. In August 30, 2016, Cortney Rowland presented at a webinar for the National Association of Elementary and School Principals (NAESP) on the new Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL).  This webinar compared the new standards with the previous ISLLC standards and how districts can use PSEL to drive systems of preparation, development, and support for principals. Additionally, Rowland shared some key considerations and opportunities within the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) to do this work, particularly within Title I and Title II.
