Principal preparation, recruitment, hiring, development, and retention

Diane Rutledge sharing Leadership Matters

On May 7, 2018, the IL-PART Team shared lessons learned through the IL-PART Grant, what the data tells us, tools that can be used, and much more. 

Within the IL-PART Grant, partners collaborated in a two-fold effort aimed at:

  1. Enhancing the role of the district/university partnerships in creating rigorous and relevant principal training programs aligned to the complexities faced by today’s principals.
  2. Working collectively to improve teaching and learning and support high academic standards for students in participating high-need districts.

The partners worked to prepare highly-effective school principals and assistant principals that positively impact student learning in high-need districts. They also developed effective partnerships between University partners and high-need districts to build leadership capacity in an effort to improve student outcomes. 

The resources shared at the conference are now available for download.
