Overview

Educational accountability for excellence begins with educational leaders. In the past decade states have adopted revised requirements for school and district leaders in K-12 public schools with reliance on national standards like ELCC and ISLLC leadership standards. The development of Common Core State Standards (CCSS), No Child Left Behind (NCLB), and Race to the Top have also had profound changes on school curriculum, instruction, assessment and district leadership, evaluation, and accountability.

While there are many and varying leadership books on the market, few to none outline an effective framework of educational leadership domains needed to address the current needs of administrator evaluation, self-reflection, and personal growth.
