The Office of Educator Effectiveness is proud to share a new performance rubric for principals. This rubric will be in EdReflect, but not soon enough to base the 2019-2020 Principal PGP on it. The foundation of LEADS 2018 is the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (CCSSO, 2015), and has many connections to the current rubric. This means PGP’s can be aligned with LEADS 2018 at the start of next school year.
A perfect opportunity to begin your understanding of LEADS 2018 will be at the ADE 2019 Summit http://www.arkansased.gov/divisions/communications/ade-summit-2019 Our assistant commissioner, Dr. Suzanne Bailey, and one of our assistant state superintendents, Sheila Whitlow, will have a LEADS 2018 session on June 18 and 20. Now is a perfect time to register!
