Overview of a Standards-based accountability system for Georgia’s school principals

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Since the beginning of major decentralization efforts in 2005, the improvement of the education system has been hampered by a lack of proficient school leadership. In an effort to address this issue, the Ministry of Education and Science, with support through USAID’s EMP project has begun developing a common vision for principals within the decentralized system. This vision aims to establish professional standards, identify performance indicators and outcomes for principals, clarify the minimal competencies to become a principal through a certification program, and create an evaluation system that connects principal professional development with evaluation which supports decentralization efforts of the past five years.
Ms. Katiashvili will describe how EMP assisted the Ministry in developing principal standards that addressed the current leadership situation in Georgia. Specifically, she will detail how a working group composed of Ministry representatives, principals, university representatives, teachers, and EMP staff and consultants determined what kind of schools standards Georgia needed and then drafted the standards. Ms. Khatiashvili will share lessons about how the group worked collectively, taking advantage of international expertise, to determine how principal standards must reflect Georgian education realities while focusing on improving the profession for the future and clearly delineating the required processes and outcomes for which principals are fundamentally responsible. In addition, Ms Khatiashvili will discuss how the program used collaboration with Vanderbilt University, through a study tour and in-country consultation, to help key educational leaders build their capacity support Georgian leaders to continually problem solve in a safe supportive environment.
