Securing Accountability

"Practicing leadership as pedagogy asks a great deal of leaders and followers alike. It calls both to higher levels of commitment. It calls both to higher levels of goodness. It calls both to higher levels of effort. And it calls both to higher levels of accountability." (Sergiovanni, 1996)

"Ultimately, leaders are accountable to and for the vision of the group they are leading"
(Phelps, 2009)

Leadership Practices:
Building staff members' sense of internal accountability
Meeting the demands for external accountability

Active School Improvement Team Member 

Reflection:
Our School Improvement Plan was developed through collaborative analysis of data. We revisited recommendations from our District Support Report (2014) to help inform our goal setting. Our problem of practice and theory of action statements allowed our team to elicit thinking and provide next steps for the staff. 
Our action plans incorporated specific examples of classroom strategies for success (task, feedback, criteria, differentiation, moderation).
