Philosophy and Goals
Current research consistently supports the findings that the role of an effective instructional leader is the most significant variable to improve teaching and learning and influences a 25 percent increase in student achievement. The relationship between principal performance and school quality supports the belief that it is impossible to have a high performing school without an effective principal.
A principal must be knowledgeable and skilled:
- as a facilitator of making student and adult learning the priority
- in setting high expectations for performance
- as the leader of a professional learning community
- in gearing content and instruction to standards
- in creating a culture of continuous learning for adults
- in using multiple sources of data to assess learning
- in activating the community’s support for school success
Leaders today will be called upon to demonstrate a variety of skills that address demands as mandated by the state. Assistant Principals must have cutting-edge professional knowledge and skills to ensure exemplary achievement for all students in the 21st-century schools.
