Effective Principals for California Schools: Building a Coherent Leadership Development System


By Karen Kearney


Publication 2010

This document examines each stage of the leadership development continuum, providing related research, best practices, and any relevant information from earlier state task force reports. In doing so, it draws on the authors’ collective years of on-the-ground leadership development experience. For each stage, readers will also find a summary perspective, as well as implications for action that are tailored to the roles and responsibilities of various sectors of the California education community. Taken as a whole, the proposal is intended to guide the state’s education community in planning and implementing a cohesive set of improvements to strengthen the principal pipeline so as to better ensure a quality workforce that would make it possible, and more probable, for every California school to be led by an effective principal.
