The nation does not have a clear, practical way of acknowledging district leaders who have demonstrated the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to move schools toward greater equity and excellence.
District leaders have few opportunities to build their capacity to advance excellence and equity in the schools they supervise.
Some district leaders don’t acknowledge how their leadership actions positively or negatively influence the pursuit of excellence and equity in the schools they supervise.
More than ever, the nation needs district leaders who demonstrate the ability to dismantle systems that perpetuate racist outcomes and generate outstanding results for every demographic group of students.
Some district leaders have not had opportunities to see and experience schools that achieve outstanding learning results for diverse populations of students.
District leaders want practical approaches that have proven successful in schools where all demographic groups achieve outstanding learning results.
