CONTINUUM: for

Five Important Notes About the Five Levels of Development

  • All of the 99 indicators from the Alabama Standards are incorporated into the first level of development, Pre-service Leadership.

  • Continuum projects developmental growth. Leaders, given new contexts, may occasionally find themselves moving from right to left on the continuum.

  • No instructional leader will be at the same level of development for all

  • eight standards.

  • Levels of development are cumulative, each level builds on the one (s) before it.

  • Leaders who assess themselves at Collaborative Leadership are effective. Accomplished leadership, identifies and develops other to serve as leaders ensuring exemplary practice continues. Distinguished Leadership indicates influence/impact beyond the school.
