  1. Redefining Leadership for ImprovedInstructional Practice and Student Performance

  2. OLAC Beliefs/Assumptions • The purpose of leadership is the improvement of instructional practice and student performance, regardless of role; • Ohio’s leadership system must be anchored in teaching and learning, focused on building community, and directed to ensuring the success of all children; and • A common and collective understanding of essential practices or behaviors is needed to create a coherent leadership development system. A collaborative effort between the Buckeye Association of School Administrators and the Ohio Department of Education

  3. OLAC Goals • Identify essential leadership skills/practices for superintendents, DLTs, BLTs • Identify types of PD/support needed to help them acquire these skills, and how such PD could be deployed for universal access • Identify tools or products needed to facilitate their development A collaborative effort between the Buckeye Association of School Administrators and the Ohio Department of Education

  4. Accomplishments • Ohio’s Leadership Development Framework published • OLAC web site restructured • On-line performance assessment developed and available to all districts/schools at no cost • Initial set of 9 modules developed and available to all districts/schools at no cost A collaborative effort between the Buckeye Association of School Administrators and the Ohio Department of Education

  5. Superintendent Standards & Evaluation System • Delineates standards and research-based indicators for use in evaluating superintendent performance • Provides opportunity for boards of education to re-examine roles and responsibilities of superintendents and facilitates clear communication about expectations • Provides tool for continuous growth of superintendents • Helps focus boards on what’s important in the performance of superintendents A collaborative effort between the Buckeye Association of School Administrators and the Ohio Department of Education

  6. Board Members Play Critical Role in: Developing and approving district goals Ensuring district goals for achievement and instruction remain primary focus of district efforts Engaging multiple constituencies to gain support for needed improvements and to sustain a focus on district goals Maintaining a student-centered focus and ensuring that improvement efforts are designed to ensure the success of every child

  7. Iowa Association of School Boards Research Study Shows School Boards Make a Difference in Student Achievement School boards in high-achieving districts are significantly different in their knowledge, beliefs and actions than school boards in low-achieving districts.

  8. The results show that school boards in districts with high student achievement: Set a few clear goals. Held themselves and district staff accountable for meeting the established goals. Consistently expressed the belief that all students can learn and that the schools could teach all students.

  9. The results show that school boards in districts with high student achievement: Were far more knowledgeable about teaching and learning issues. Used data regarding student needs to make decisions. Created a supportive workplace for staff. Involved their communities.

  10. OLAC Supports the Use of Collaborative Leadership Team Structures for… • Promoting shared learning and shared accountability • Shifting focus from a single individual to a team that can function as purposeful communities • Aligning and focusing work across the system using few district goals • Designing system planning and focused improvement strategies, structures, and processes; A collaborative effort between the Buckeye Association of School Administrators and the Ohio Department of Education

  11. The OLAC-OIP Connection Ohio’s Leadership Development Framework provides a foundation for Ohio’s improvement process OIP is strategy for enacting the Ohio Leadership Development Framework

  12. A collaborative effort between the Buckeye Association of School Administrators and the Ohio Department of Education

  13. Promote Coherence & Eliminate Fragmentation Recognize evident connection of district to all buildings Move AWAY FROM program ownership TOshared/collective ownership for improvement DLT-BLT offers parallel process for aligning and focusing the work
