Redefining the Role of a Principal: Leading Learning Communities Series
The National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), a leader in advocacy and support for elementary and middle level principals, partnered with Collaborative to develop Leading Learning Communities: Standards for What Principals Should Know and Be Able To Do, Second Edition. This new version, updating and expanding the original that Collaborative developed for NAESP in 2001, was released in April 2008 at NAESP's national convention in Nashville, TN. The Leading Learning Communities standards build upon those outlined in 2001, with a strong focus on the extensive changes in society and education that have occurred over the last seven years. In an era of intense accountability, an increasingly global society and rapid changes in technology.
Collaborative worked with NAESP to revise the guidebook using the most recent and relevant research, trends, tools and information available. In tandem, Collaborative created a landmark publication for NAESP titled, Vision 2021: Transformations in Leading, Learning and Community that explores these trends and paints a vivid picture of the future of learning. Leading Learning Communities: Standards for What Principals Should Know and Be Able To Do, Second Edition, can be ordered from NAESP. Collaborative also created the Leading Learning Communities Executive Summary, which can be downloaded for free off the NAESP homepage.
The national education newspaper, Education Week, provided coverage on NAESP’s release of this new edition of Leading Learning Communities and of Vision 2021. Read the article, Principals’ Group Updates Standards for Leadership, published April 9, 2008. Together, these guidebooks form the Leading Learning Communities series, a series that continues to expand the horizon for principals while providing these leaders with the support they need.
