Impact Evaluation of Support for Principals

2014-2020
Prepared For

U.S. Department of Education, Institute of Education Sciences

School leadership has been receiving increased attention by policymakers in recent years. For example, Race to the Top states have efforts underway related to principal preparation. In addition, between 2011 and 2014, more than $100 million was appropriated to the U.S. Department of Education’s School Leadership Program to support the development, enhancement, or expansion of innovative programs to recruit, train, and mentor school leaders in high-need districts. Finally, one goal of the U.S. Department of Education’s Turnaround School Leaders Program is to provide high-quality training to prepare school leaders to successfully lead turnaround efforts in schools eligible for or receiving School Improvement Grants. Despite this increased attention, research on the effectiveness of these types of supports for principals is limited.
