Wallace Foundation Supports New Professional Standards For School Leaders
After more than a year of deliberations, a set of professional standards for education school leaders are set to head out the door.
The National Policy Board for Educational Administration unanimously adopted the standards on Thursday. They will no longer go by the acronym ISLLC, short for Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium standards, as they have been known since they were first devised and adopted as professional benchmarks for principals and school leaders in 1996.
Instead, they will be called Professional Standards for Educational Leaders, which better reflect their contents, according to the Council of Chief State School Officers, which owns the copyright to the standards. The new standards are expected to be published and distributed next month. . .
The process was funded by the Wallace Foundation, which supports coverage of leadership and expanded learning time at Education Week. . .
