In November of 2015 the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL) were approved by the NPBEA. These standards, formerly known as the ISLLC standards, articulate the knowledge and skills expected of school leaders. Subsequently, a committee was convened to develop a set of leadership preparation standards that align to the PSEL. These preparation standards, formerly known as the Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC) standards, have been renamed the National Educational Leadership Preparation (NELP) standards and will be used to guide design, accreditation review, and state approval of preparation programs for principals and superintendents. Learn more about the NELP standards and how they were developed by reviewing the NELP Standards Introduction document. We encourage your review of the standards for both building leaders and district leaders and hope you will participate in the public comment period, which will be open through May 22nd.
