Mission and Vision

Connecting Leadership and Student Achievement

The mission of School Leaders Network is to expand educational opportunity for all students by transforming school leadership practices.

To achieve this mission, SLN provides the structure for public school principals to work together in SLN Networks, guided by highly skilled SLN Facilitators using the research-based SLN Program Model, to solve real problems, to become innovative and inspired leaders who improve schools and student achievement, school-by-school, so that all students in under-resourced schools graduate with college ready skills. 

It is our vision that all SLN Principals will have the knowledge, skills, commitment, courage, personal and professional attributes and support to become leaders of high performing schools, so that all their students will graduate with the skills and knowledge to enable them to be successful in college and beyond.

Success is based on our belief in the direct connection between leadership and student achievement:
