The Wallace Foundation, in collaboration with the Council of Great City Schools, has shared a report describing the “changing role of principal supervisors” in the publication “Rethinking Leadership.” The report is especially insightful for leaders navigating the implementation of the Common Core with specific mention of the standards and the instructional shifts throughout the document. Such as:
In the Context of the Common Core State Standards, principal supervisors also need professional development focused on helping them develop a deep knowledge of the instructional shifts required by the new standards, as well as what constitutes evidence of the shifts.
For educators interested in seeing how other districts are navigating the implementation of the CCSS, the report, located here, could prove a productive read. For those seeking “evidence” of the shifts, as described in the report, the Instructional Practice Guides remain of paramount value.
