Relevance of Course Content

Relevance of Course Content to School Leader Standards

In November 1996, the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC), a program of the Council of Chief State School Officers, adopted six model standards for school leaders. Forged from research on productive educational leadership and the wisdom of colleagues, the standards were drafted by personnel from 24 state education agencies and representatives from various professional associations. In 2005, over 40 states had either adopted or adapted the ISLLC Standards and were in different stages of implementing the Standards in reforming educational leadership within their state.
