The District Leadership Challenge: Empowering Principals to Improve Teaching and Learning

Jon Schmidt-Davis
Director, SREB Learning-Centered Leadership Program

Just a few years ago, school principals were expected to focus primarily on management and administration. Today, that focus has shifted.

SREB's Learning-Centered Leadership Program works with district, state and university partners to prepare aspiring principals and school leadership teams to aggressively lead improvement in curriculum, instruction and student achievement.
The four-pronged program:
  • conducts research on the preparation and development of school principals and prepares benchmark reports to track the progress of SREB states in achieving the Challenge to Lead goal: "Every school has leadership that results in improved student performance — and leadership begins with an effective school principal."
  • develops training modules and prepares trainers to deliver modules through university programs, state leadership academies and other professional development initiatives. 
  • provides ongoing state guidance and technical assistance in leadership redesign and keeps policy-makers aware of key issues for change through annual forums and publications.
  • helps states develop policies and plans for providing high-quality training and assistance to leadership teams in low-performing schools.
