Purpose and Design
Instructional Leaders are those within the school
system that impact and support teachers and instruction in the classroom and
may include Principals, Assistant Principals, Deans and Directors,
Instructional Facilitators, Curriculum & Instructional Coaches, and
District Instructional Leaders.
The purpose of Instructional Leader Empowerment
is to support growth through a focus on improving instruction in the
classroom. Instructional Leader Empowerment provides professional learning
and sharing opportunities from both national subject matter experts and local
Arkansas educators. Sessions focus on developing and nurturing a plan and
process for instructional leaders to impact and support classroom teachers and
instruction in the classroom.
The design of Instructional Leader Empowerment
will include three (3), two-day onsite interactions for a total of six days of
content delivery and sharing.

Leader Empowerment will be able to:
