FYI- I can’t screen share until Robert stops
right, he'll take slides down and you should be free to share yours. Just a short transition.
Yep, just making sure you are aware. Thanks, Renee!

Snaps for Anna and Constance showing up from North Carolina!
Thanks, Mebane :) Shout-out to EdNC!
Question: In your review, were there any examples of changes in principal's race positively impacting outcomes for students? (So, black principal replacing white principal resulting in improved outcomes for black students or other students of color)
Love the framework!
Glad to hear you did include special education under the leadership of the principal. How about the variety of early childhood education programs (Pre-K, Head Start, Early Childhood Special Education, etc.) that in some states have been or are growing within public school settings? I know Illinois has worked on legislation to infuse ECE into principal preservice efforts....
Did you find that principals had to be a minimum number of years before data actually improved? Was there any relationship between the leaders tenure, their teacher's tenure and outcomes?
What would you include in preparation programs that is not currently required to improve principal quality.
In a state that provides a lot of authority to local school divisions, especially related to personnel, what can state boards do to improve the principal pipeline and mentorship programs?
Greater stability rather than turnover in leadership was highlighted as a benefit. Is there an idea as to a threshold of how much turnover is too much turnover?
Thanks to Donna Leak to mention SEL.
Principals need to know how to develop those trusting relationships.
I so agree with the mentoring. Great comment.
So, if your state already requires internship/mentorship prior to principal licensure, what part of the system do you change to improve outcomes? In other words, how do you operationalize those things necessary to improve quality.
YES!!!! what is developmentally appropriate practices in ece is critical for principals to understand! Lead the charge Robert!!!! ;)
