Principal development is a critical lever to drive school improvement efforts, achieve states’ equity goals, and ultimately improve outcomes for each student, especially those with disabilities. The Council of Chief State School Officers—with support from the Oak Foundation and the U.S. Department of Education through a partnership with the CEEDAR Center—developed this online guide to help states establish a vision for and advance policies and practices that develop and support principals to lead inclusive schools where each student excels and feels safe, supported, and valued.
