A New Vision for Leadership in Schools Through Innovative Teacher Education: The Case of One University/School Partnership
Unformatted Document Text:  Because of the broad based participation in the design, implementation and evaluation of the project as well as the rich data collected at every stage, we believe the model has promise for use in other contexts. State policy-makers, district administrators and community members who attended the research symposium to listen to participant project reports commented favorably about the model’s potential to transform schools. Based on preliminary results and support by key stake-holders, plans are underway to revise the graduate program at the sponsoring university. In addition, university team members are deliberating with district administrators about how to adapt the model for use in two schools which have the lowest achievement scores in the state. Outcomes and Methods Learner/Participant Outcomes Conference participants attending this session will have an opportunity to reflect about how universities can play a leadership role in helping schools respond to the mandates for improving achievement. We believe the session will interest faculty and administrators in universities and P-12 schools who are seeking to systemically address the issue. Our project was motivated by the idea that it is important to cultivate leaders within schools who can play various roles in the quest to improve teacher quality and student achievement. We hope to give session participants a clear picture of how we approached the task. Handouts will provide a framework for the presentation and a springboard for helping participants think about how they might adapt the model to meet their needs. Methods Presenters will describe the model, discuss the survey and focus group data, and share samples from the participant research projects with session attendees. We will discuss successes and challenges encountered while implementing the project as well as plans for transforming the university graduate and professional development programs which are planned as a result of the data analysis. We will invite questions, comments and suggestions from attendees for ways to improve the design.

Because of the broad based participation in the design, implementation and evaluation of
the project as well as the rich data collected at every stage, we believe the model has
promise for use in other contexts. State policy-makers, district administrators and
community members who attended the research symposium to listen to participant
project reports commented favorably about the model’s potential to transform schools.
Based on preliminary results and support by key stake-holders, plans are underway to
revise the graduate program at the sponsoring university. In addition, university team
members are deliberating with district administrators about how to adapt the model for
use in two schools which have the lowest achievement scores in the state.
Outcomes and Methods
Learner/Participant Outcomes
Conference participants attending this session will have an opportunity to reflect about
how universities can play a leadership role in helping schools respond to the mandates for
improving achievement. We believe the session will interest faculty and administrators in
universities and P-12 schools who are seeking to systemically address the issue. Our
project was motivated by the idea that it is important to cultivate leaders within schools
who can play various roles in the quest to improve teacher quality and student
achievement. We hope to give session participants a clear picture of how we approached
the task. Handouts will provide a framework for the presentation and a springboard for
helping participants think about how they might adapt the model to meet their needs.
Methods
Presenters will describe the model, discuss the survey and focus group data, and share
samples from the participant research projects with session attendees. We will discuss
successes and challenges encountered while implementing the project as well as plans for
transforming the university graduate and professional development programs which are
planned as a result of the data analysis. We will invite questions, comments and
suggestions from attendees for ways to improve the design.
