Instructional Leadership Academy

OVERVIEW

What does quality instruction look and sound like? With a common language for good instructional practice, leaders can create responsive teacher learning opportunities across the system — and offer all of their students a chance to thrive.
 
In the Instructional Leadership Academy, you’ll be part of a collaborative learning community with a shared vision and language, working towards the same goals. You’ll observe and analyze teaching and learning in ways that elevate student experiences, particularly for those furthest from justice. And you’ll also develop practices in collecting qualitative data, giving targeted feedback and planning strategic teacher learning that can have an impact right away. 

WHAT YOU’LL ACCOMPLISH

You’ll improve instructional leadership and teaching practice in schools and classrooms across an entire system. With a shared vision, leaders can ensure that all students have a chance to grow socially, emotionally and academically.

 

WHO IT’S FOR

The Instructional Leadership Academy is for school leaders, including assistant principals, and those who support them.

 

HOW IT WORKS

Instructional Leadership Academy learning is job-embedded and grounded in the 4 Dimensions of School Leadership™ and 5 Dimensions of Teaching and Learning™ frameworks. You’ll develop skills for discerning inequities in student learning, talking about instruction using evidence and providing strengths-based feedback to support teacher growth.

 

 

Academy participants have the option to begin with the Measures of Instructional Leadership Expertise (MILE) online assessment to identify baseline strengths and areas for growth.
