To successfully improve teaching and learning, recent research has underscored the importance of effective instructional leadership and strong teacher collaboration. In this session, participants will gain a greater understanding of their role as instructional leaders in supporting teachers to advance improvement. Key competencies that will be discussed include: establishing a shared vision and philosophy, building trust and collective responsibility through inclusive decision making, providing instructional guidance, supporting data use, and facilitating on-the-job professional learning. Participants will consider ways to re/define roles and responsibilities for their leadership team to ensure sufficient time for administrative leadership and management, as well as instructional leadership and coaching. Participants will also gain new resources and tools to support their inclusive, instructional leadership efforts, including a step-by-step process for collaborating with staff to analyze data, set goals, and create plans for improvement.

At the end of this session the participant will be able to: 
  • Describe early childhood instructional leadership competencies and teacher collaboration strategies key to improvement and connect them to revised Head Start performance standards
  • Create plan for collaboratively analyzing data and developing program goals for the coming year
