Evaluating Instructional Leadership free pdf Even with great teachers, student achievement hinges on an effective principal. Behind every high-quality principal is an airtight system of leadership evaluation that consistently rewards excellence and remedies deficits. While teacher evaluation methods have improved, instructional leadership evaluation has often stood still - and student learning and achievement have paid the price. This book identifies the major problems in this process and articulates clear solutions. The result is a blueprint for ensuring the best person for the job is occupying the principal's chair. Content includes: extensive data, presented in a user-friendly manner- clear connections to the new ISLLC Standards for School Leaders and a suite of interactive tools including sample self-assessments, mid-year and final evaluation forms, and professional growth plans.
