Revised Draft ISLLC Standards for School Leaders

In June 2014, CCSSO partnered with the National Policy Board for Educational Administration (NPBEA) to refresh the ISLLC Standards for school leaders. These standards are important because they detail the knowledge and skills effective district and school leaders need in order to build teams of teachers and leaders who improve student learning and lead to student success. These standards have not been updated since 2008, and many things have changed in the public education system since then.

Over the past year, CCSSO has conducted two public comment periods and met with many focus groups of stakeholders to gather feedback and input. CCSSO hopes to present the final standards to the National Policy Board for Educational Administration (NPBEA) in Fall 2015 for approval. This summer, we are working closely with members of NPBEA this summer to review the comments received from the most recent public comment period in May. In addition, a group will be created to specifically address concerns raised in the public comment period and recommend the final leadership standards. We expect this group to meet in August and September. We will continue to post updates on this website throughout the process.
