Overview

"This is precisely what we need to get us to the next level of student success through better leadership."
--Terry Thompson, Superintendent
Wayne Township, Indianapolis, IN


"At a time when school leadership is central to the success of students, Reeves offers a comprehensive means to measure the critical elements of effective school leadership."
--Vincent Ferrandino, Executive Director
National Association of Elementary School Principals 

"Research studies increasingly support the significant impact that effective leaders have on school performance. A skilled leader is an essential component in successful school reform. This book makes a compelling case for transforming leadership evaluation from perfunctory to a focus on performance, reflection, and results."
--Gerald N. Tirozzi, Executive Director
National Association of Secondary School Principals

"Reeves' book is not just another book on school leadership, but a blueprint for developing leaders."
--The School Administrator, December 2004

Improve teaching, learning, and leadership at every level by using a new process of leadership evaluation!

Drawing on current research, theory, and best practices of leadership, organizational performance, and personnel evaluation, this book contains the information and tools necessary to successfully evaluate all types of educational leaders and improve individual and organizational performance. Author of 17 books and numerous articles, national expert on topics of educational leadership and accountability Douglas B.Reeves provides a blueprint for creating a leader evaluation system that is fair and consistent.

Based on 10 Dimensions of Leadership, Reeves provides a scoring rubric that allows leaders, boards, and leadership trainees to compare performance that is exemplary, proficient, and progressing with performance that does not meet today's standards. Whether your school system already has a leadership evaluation system in place or you are just starting to create one, this book will improve the way you evaluate and develop educational leaders.

Three critical conclusions at the heart of the book are:

  • Leadership has a dramatic impact on student achievement, equity, and staff morale
  • Leadership effectiveness includes both personal predispositions and acquired knowledge skills
The purpose of leadership evaluation is to improve personal and organizational performance, not merely to render an evaluation Assessing Educational Leaders demonstrates the need for a new form of leadership evaluation for all leaders in the field of education and offers a new model of leadership evaluation.

When properly implemented, a leadership evaluation system provides invaluable resources for identifying and developing future leadership talent. It paints the picture of organizational strengths and challenges that will improve teaching, learning, and leadership at every level in the educational system.
