Abstract:

Effective school leaders are critical to the transformation of our nation’s schools into 21st century learning communities where potential of all students can be maximized. Indeed, there is growing evidence that school leaders are central to educational reform and improved student achievement (Leithwood, Louis, Anderson, & Wahlstrom, 2004). The university-based program described in this paper has a 60-year history of preparing quality school leaders based on the best research in the field (Darling-Hammond, LaPointe, Meyerson, Orr, & Cohen, 2007; Orr, 2008).

The university recently received funding to extend its efforts to increase academic achievement by developing 120 effective leaders prepared for urban secondary schools through building true partnerships with three high-needs urban districts that serve 14% of all Texas students living in poverty. In order to achieve this goal, the project will (a) identify the unique needs of each district partner; (b) recruit, identify, select, financially support, and prepare high-quality candidates with potential to become effective principals; (c) provide ongoing evaluation to ensure candidate growth and program effectiveness; (d) recruit, select, and train mentors in each partner district; and (e) develop and implement district level strategies to support and retain current effective leaders who can provide follow on and support to future aspiring leaders in the district. This paper provides detail about plans to achieve the aforementioned goals and reports progress in developing its first district partnership.
