School Leaders Network's mission is to expand educational opportunity for all students by transforming school leadership practices.
Our vision is that all school leaders will have the knowledge, skills, commitment and support to lead high performing schools so that all students succeed.
Our vision is grounded in the belief is that the only way to reach entire systems of teachers is through school leaders. While research has shown that teachers are the single-most important classroom-based determinant of student success, school-wide student success requires a team effort. And it is the responsibility of the school leader to build this team endeavor.
Highly effective principals harness the collective leadership, instructional expertise and energy of their staff and school community in a support of a common goal to ensure all students succeed. Successful school leaders are catalysts. They inspire and encourage others to excel. They create the climate and systems in which teaching and learning continuously thrive and gains in student achievement are sustained.
It is great school, instructional and teacher leadership that transform good schools into to great schools.
