Leadership Pipelines

Leadership Pipelines - a part of the TEEM Model

District implements processes for identifying, recruiting, selecting, placing, supporting, evaluating, and retaining effective principals.

Why is this important?

  • School leaders have an impact on student achievement (Bryk et al., 2010).
  • School leadership is second only to teaching in its influence on student learning (Leithwood et al., 2004).
  • Novice teachers cite lack of professional and administrative support as a primary reason for leaving the profession (Headden, 2014).
  • High principal turnover has been linked to low student achievement and is common in high-need, hard-to-staff schools (Headden, 2014).

How can TxCEE help?

  • Support the development of leadership pipelines for districts who want talent-ready individuals prepared to move into leadership roles.
  • Guide and assist in the development of effective programs or learning opportunities to prepare future leaders.
  • Introduce one or more components of our Texas Principal Residency Program (TxPRP) to provide intensive, job-embedded training and support for novice principals.
