Districts nationwide are focusing on principal leadership as essential to realizing effective teaching for all students. In the process, they are creating new central office positions — often called “principal supervisors” — to support the work. But is principal supervision the right focus for helping all principals grow as instructional leaders?
In this webinar, Dr. Meredith Honig shares her research about the importance of central offices in not only supervising but partnering with principals in ways that maximize their learning. With CEL’s Max Silverman, she illustrates her findings with examples from districts that forged such learning-focused partnerships.
UW Associate Professor Dr. Meredith I. Honig and Max Silverman, CEL’s executive director, will guide presentation participants toward:
- Understanding the research base on high-leverage central office practices that can improve principal instructional leadership practice
- Understanding the role of Instructional Leadership Director (ILD) and how it can directly support principal instructional leadership practice
