Schoolwide Model: Leadership
Strong instructional leadership maintains a focus on high-quality instruction, organizes and allocates resources to support reading,
and establishes mechanisms to communicate reading progress and practices.
- Administrators or the leadership team are knowledgeable of state standards, priority reading skills and strategies, assessment measures and practices,
and instructional programs and materials.
- Administrators or the leadership team work with staff to create a coherent plan for reading instruction and implement practices to attain school reading goals.
- Administrators or the leadership team maximize and protect instructional time and organize resources and personnel to support reading instruction, practice, and assessment.
- Grade-level teams are established and supported to analyze reading performance and plan instruction.
- Concurrent instruction (e.g., Title, special education) is coordinated with and complementary to general education reading instruction.
- A communication plan for reporting and sharing student performance with teachers, parents, and school, district, and state administrators is in place.
