Managing Teacher Leadership for School Improvement

Wednesday February 7, 2024
10:45 AM - 12:15 PM

Teacher leadership (TL) is a strategy used by states and districts to address teaching and learning challenges, promote sustainable school improvement, support better outcomes for students, and retain teachers by recognizing and reinforcing the role of teacher leaders in school improvement. This is what motivated the West Virginia Department of Education to develop its framework to help build districts’ capacity to develop effective TL programs. This workshop explores reasons to focus on TL, identifies common barriers to effective implementation, and invites participants to practice designing a TL role aligned to a teaching or learning challenge. Activities align with tasks developed for the free Managing Teacher Leadership learning modules the Region 5 Comprehensive Center developed in partnership with the WV Department of Education and are designed to strengthen leaders’ capacity to carefully and deliberately design effective TL programs in their state, district, or building.
