Use this guide with your staff to lead dynamic learning communities.
November 2019, Volume 43, Issue 3

In its nearly 100-year history, NAESP has established itself as a leader in many areas, but none so much as in defining the competencies of what principals should know and be able to do. For nearly two decades, Leading Learning Communities has been a foundational and essential resource for the nation’s elementary and middle-level principals.

The Principal’s Role
NAESP’s new Leading Learning Communities: Pillars, Practices, and Priorities for Effective Principals publication helps principals structure their practice to focus on aspects of school leadership that will have long-lasting impact on student success. Pulled from that publication, the contents of the Leading Lessons: Shared Vision, Shared Success guide serve as a starting point for principals to work with their faculty and staff as they increase educational equity, foster diversity, close achievement gaps, and care for the well-being of students.
