Principal Support Framework Action Area Resources and Tools

This collection of conceptual and practical resources and tools is intended to help districts and charter management organizations as they use the Principal Support Framework (PSF) and the PSF District Self-Assessment and Planning Template to implement new systems and practices that support principals as instructional leaders.  Contributed by the Partnership Sites to Empower Effective Teaching and supplemented with tools from the Center for Educational Leadership and Break the Curve Consulting, these materials represent the current state of practice and were selected for their value in helping sites conceptualize, design, problem solve, and/or align the work of selecting and supporting principals as instructional leaders.  At the links below you'll find helpful examples of instructional leadership frameworks, templates for job descriptions, an extensive set of tools for principal hiring and instructional leadership planning, principal effectiveness scorecards, tools for teacher leader development, and many other resources that support critical aspects of the process.  

The resources and tools are organized by action area and key idea within the PSF:

Action Area 1: A Shared Vision of Principals as Instructional Leaders
Action Area 2: System of Support for Developing Principals as Instructional Leaders
Action Area 3: Making It Possible for Principals to Be Instructional Leaders
