"Accelerating Education Leaders. Building Leadership Pipelines for School Success"

Our Point of View, Research, and Solutions

Research consistently confirms that effective educational leaders improve outcomes across school systems. Recent findings in a joint venture between RAND Corporation and the Wallace Foundation support the importance of establishing comprehensive principal pipelines within school districts. School districts who participated in the Principal Pipeline Initiative (PPI) had greater student achievement outcomes in both Math and Reading and higher rates of principal retention.

Building a strong leadership pipeline serves as a catalyst for transformational change, but it may be hard to decide how to begin. At the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL)® we believe culture is a crucial precursor to pipeline initiatives and other school-based interventions. Schools are continually working toward improvement through a variety of programs and interventions, but strategies that do not have the support of the organizational culture are destined to be rejected. Educational leader pipelines should be framed in terms of the culture they equip school leaders to build.

Evidence shows that positional leaders like principals are key to creating positive school culture. Effective leadership cascades through a school, instilling a culture of greater collaboration and trust, driving more effective instruction, and ultimately, impacting student learning. In fact, leadership is second only to classroom instruction among school-related factors that contribute to what students learn at school.
