when-central-offices-help-pRecorded: March 19, 2014 (53 minutes)

Join the University of Washington Center for Educational Leadership (CEL) and Dr. Meredith Honig for a webinar as part of the Leading for Effective Teaching Project supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

This webinar featuring Dr. Honig is the second in a series of webinars that CEL is hosting related to how central offices can best support principals as instructional leaders. The webinar series features leading experts who address aspects of the Principal Support Framework.

During this webinar, participants will engage with research on (1) how central offices are fundamentally transforming how they work with principals to help all principals grow as instructional leaders and (2) how district leaders work strategically and continuously with data about central office performance as an essential part of that process. We will explore challenges districts face when trying to work well with data to improve their performance and suggest next steps for district leaders to consider.
