How does Human Resources operate in a school district central office when it works in concert with principals, principal supervisors and Teaching & Learning to support equitable educational outcomes?

Principal supervisors do when they support improved teaching and learning in schools? Our research shows they dedicate their time to helping principals grow as instructional leaders and they provide support for such growth from a teaching stance. Such an approach to principal supervision requires some districts to shed their old expectations of principal supervisors as mainly evaluators of principals or people who handle operations and reinvent the principal supervisor’s role as a main instructional partner to school principals. This page includes reports of our research and tools to help principal supervisors, Chief Academic Officers, and other district leaders use the research to ground principal supervisor performance standards, evaluation, and professional development.
