Superintendent Nancy McGinley shared that Evidence-Based Leadership helps her district, its leaders, teachers, and students get better at what they do (McGinley, WRIE 2012 Presentation). Why is it important to get better? McGinley shares three reasons:
Improve Teacher and Student Performance with New Standards
Want Schools to be Asset to Community
It’s what’s Right
The second reason, wanting Charleston County schools to an asset to the community, is explained further by McGinley in the video below:
Dr. McGinley and her colleagues at Charleston County School District have embraced Evidence-Based Leadership practices that focus on aligning goals, behaviors, and processes to guarantee leadership excellence, improved customer relations, and organizational outcomes. Results are evidenced in the district’s state report card.
As district leaders and teachers in Charleston engage in Evidence-Based Leadership practices that help to increase student learning and parent satisfaction results – both key principles making up school accountability systems – they are also developing a relationship with them and, in turn, becoming an asset to the community.

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.
