Assessing Principal Effectiveness for Improved Student Achievement
Principal leadership is an essential element of successful schools. Effective learning-centered leadership is
at the intersection of two dimensions: core components created through key processes. Core components
refer to characteristics of schools that support the learning of students and enhance the ability of teachers to
teach. Key processes refer to how leaders create and manage those core components. Come find out
which core components and key processes are crucial practices that promote effective school leadership
and improved student achievement.
