Multiple Pathways for Developing School Turnaround Leaders USDOE


U.S. Department of Education


In response to a critical shortage of leaders to support school turnaround efforts, Miami-Dade County Public Schools (Florida) implemented a strategy to develop the skills of aspiring leaders who are in the district and want to become principals and instructional coaches in its lowest performing schools. Miami-Dade’s SIG- and Title I–funded Education Transformation Office (ETO) uses this principal development strategy as part of its focus on providing district support for its lowest performing schools.1 To address the leadership shortfall, ETO offers multiple pathways for promoting school turnaround leadership skills in district staff. The strategy aims to build the skills of current teachers and assistant principals who already are working in low-performing schools and who have a record of success in improving student outcomes.
