An outstanding school has inspirational leadership with a clear vision and direction.  Its leadership sets high goals for students and staff and sets measurement, accountability, and support processes to aid achievement.  Collaboration and inclusivity are critical and extend to relationships with parents and the local community.  Learning is interactive and permanent.

The Center for Powerful Public Schools assists principals/school leaders in developing a unique vision and roadmap for creating and maintaining an equitable, high-performing, cohesive learning space committed to serving all.  We help engage family & community members to add resources and catalyze and sustain improvement.a

We talked about our long-term goals as well as how we can address  immediate goals to address measurable results.  We crafted our partnership based on that.    I really felt like it was a true partnership with a good understanding of what we wanted to accomplish.  We don't often find that  in the educational world.
