Learning Leaders for Learning Schools (LLLS)

    Project Summary:

    Learning Leaders for Learning Schools engages 70 principals and district office personnel in a three-year intensive professional learning experience beginning in June 2016. The experience involves state-of-the-art learning designs including seminars, small communities of practice, and personalized coaching. Goals and content align with nationally recognized leadership and PD standards and focus on priorities of participants. Facilitated communities of practice promote collective problem solving. Personalized coaching supports application of new knowledge to daily work and goal attainment.


    Students and teachers in schools with LLLS participants will experience the benefits of attending/working in a learning school. These benefits include compelling vision, committed, well-skilled, and well-supported leadership, allocated resources, data to support decision making, collective responsibility, learning teams engaged in continuous improvement cycles, and focus on results. Students and teachers will experience greater teacher and principal retention with an ability to maintain focus and sustain improvements. As a result, teaching and leadership practice will improve and student learning will rise. Stable schools contribute to more resilient and caring communities for students.
