Principal supervisors can be a key driver for school improvement when they emphasize principal growth and learning. But transforming the role of principal supervisors to help them grow principals' instructional leadership skills is a challenging task.

Read the white paper and see how different school systems have redesigned principal supervisor positions and what they have learned along the way.


This white paper provides insight into:

  • How school system leaders redesigned their principal supervisor positions according to the lessons from emerging research.
  • How they have been tackling early implementation challenges.
  • What district leaders can do to build on lessons learned from research and practice.

The school systems sharing their experiences in this white paper all participate in the Leading for Effective Teaching (LET) project, a partnership between the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Center for Educational Leadership.
