Leadership Teams (Thats You)

  • Expect of your team?

  • Just as RTI is an equal parts of assessment,
  • well planned interventions and data driven
  • decisions
  • Implementing RTI in requires equal parts
  • of strong team leadership, collaborative
    decision making and an ever evolving plan
  • for improvement

5
Strong Leadership
  • The job of principals has become far more complex
    than at any time in our history. Team (also known
    as distributive) leadership and decision sharing
    enables the school to increase its leadership
    capacity in order to manage change.

6
What is a Team?
  • The word 'team' derives from the use of oxen or
    bullocks shackled together to create a focused,
    shared force for transporting heavy materials.

You are here as part
of a team
7
Why Leadership Teams?
  • Over 70 of teachers and principals report that
    they are interested in using Teams to transform
    their schools into learning organizations.
  • The rest of the world is already doing it!

Leadership Teams Support Change

The Building Leadership Team (BLT)
  • A Leadership Team is a group of people,
    representing the larger school community, who
    collaborate through a structure of shared
    leadership in order to increase student learning
    and achievement.

Basic Assumptions that Link Leadership and
Learning
  • The opportunity to lead is inherently
    self-motivating.
  • Everyone is capable of developing and exercising
    leadership.
  • Leadership is expressed in a variety of ways.
  • There are many domains within leadership that can
    be exercised.
  • A schools culture either supports or diminishes
    the ability to develop shared leadership.

Why Leadership Teams?
  1. Research shows that schools with strong
    collaborative leadership are the most successful
    in supporting student achievement.
  2. Experience tells us that those closest to the
    students are most capable of making the best,
    most meaningful educational decisions.

    addressed (reading, math, behavior)
  • An understanding of best practice research

    team?
  • What expertise do you bring to this team?
  • Do you care about this project, either positively
    or negatively?

    (barriers to implementation) ?

    teamwork

    context

Leadership Team Build Your Norms List
  • Using the previous list and fist of 5 voting

  • Write them on one handout you keep (white), and
    one you turn in (blue).
  • 3.If there is something not on the list, that

27
Leadership Teams Your Responsibility
  • Build Capacity

28
What is Building Capacity
  • A approach to change and growth that focuses on
    gaining an understanding of what stands in the
    way of change and then developing the ability to
    address those obstacles from within.
  • This allows for the achievement of measurable
  • and sustainable improvement.

29
  • The process of change that is required to move to
    the next levels of educational reform is
    incredibly demanding.
  • What is needed is not a few good leaders, but
    large numbers to make the extraordinary efforts
    that are required
  • Michael Fullan
