National School Leadership Standards Map
School leaders’ work is changing. No longer building managers or administrative leaders only, school leaders are now instructional leaders who distribute leadership across the school like “orchestra conductors” (Wallace Foundation, 2006). As school leaders’ work changes, the standards used to prepare, certify, evaluate, and support them will change as well.
The National School Leadership Standards Map helps state education agency staff, researchers, and practitioners quickly and easily locate information on school leadership standards in all 50 states. Use the map to explore how leadership standards have been adopted, adapted, and used by states to support principals, as well as how these policies change over time.
