Learn more about how school districts can draw on data to improve the chances that a principal is ready for day one success on the job.  Check out these new resources from UCEA and The Wallace Foundation!

A recent webinar explored practical lessons learned from districts about building a Leader Tracking System (LTS) and how the data gathered can help leadership preparation programs measure effectiveness.

Featuring: Brenda Turnbull from Policy Studies Association, Tricia McManus from Hillsborough County Public Schools, Damaries Blondonville from Prince George’s County Public Schools and UCEA Executive Director Michelle Young.
Building from this webinar, UCEA has developed a concentrated research brief that highlights examples of how data from a LTS can support feedback for continuous improvement and inform placement of graduates into leadership positions.
Additionally, a new report from The Wallace Foundation, Leader Tracking Systems: Turning Data Into Information for School Leadership, offers “hard-won insights” gathered from school districts that are building data systems to assist in everything from principal hiring to principal training.
