The cornerstone of an Evidence-Based Leadership process is a framework for leaders and employees executing measurable and aligned evaluation systems focused on:
students improving their achievement levels,
employees believing their leaders provide a good work environment, and
parents feeling satisfied with their child’s education.
In the video below Dr. Karen Schulte, Superintendent of the School District of Janesville asks and answers the question, “why would a superintendent ever implement an evidence-based leadership model in his/her school district?”
The evaluative or summative part of the Evidence-Based Leadership process includes leaders and employees having an aligned and measurable evaluation system that distinguishes performance levels on set goals. All leaders and teachers engage in professional development that assists them in achieving their goals, which in turn moves the school district to achieving its strategic results.
Learn more about beginning an Evidence-Based Leadership journey in your school district from Dr. Marcelo Cavazos, Superintendent of Arlington Independent School District (TX) and Dr. Tim Onsager, Superintendent of Stoughton Area School District (WI) at What’s Right in Education 2013. Learn from them and connect with other high performing educational leaders, and discuss how to set board and superintendent measures and cascade those across all levels of leadership in the district; identify what “right” looks like in service excellence; and become part of a district leadership collaborative.
