ELSD develops administrative efficacy to support creating conditions for excellence and equity in schools, teacher retention, and community support.
ELSD consults with LEAs to document and improve systems in ways that enhance their leadership capacity and responsiveness to their students, staff, and communities.
ELSD conducts policy-relevant research on what works for principal evaluation, preparation, and professional development. We will use this research to inform and measure the impact of our own professional development services.
These services can be fully customized to meet the needs of leaders and their system.
The Supervisors of Principals Academies are offered by WestEd statewide, within regions or larger school districts. The networked learning builds coaching and feedback by using school walkthroughs, videos, and research from WestEd and other experts. The 8-month learning program can result in continuing education or graduate school credits.
