 Leadership Development Framework

Strong leadership is an essential component of our overall school and school system effectiveness. In an effort to build leadership capacity and develop strong school-based leaders, the Douglas County School System has developed a Leadership Development Framework. The Leadership Development Framework is designed to differentiate the developmental needs of both aspiring and existing school leaders. The framework is designed to address leadership development across 5 dimensions, current principals, current assistant principals, aspiring principals, aspiring assistant principals, and teacher leaders.

As part of the Leadership Development Framework, the District has designed two programs to build leadership skills for aspiring leaders. The first program is the Teacher Leader Endorsement, offered through Professional Learning. The second program is the Aspiring Assistant Principal Program, offered through the collaborative efforts of school and system level leaders.
