Publication Date



The Framework for School Leadership Accomplishments (FSLA) is designed to facilitate thinking about, developing, and implementing school outcomes that improve student learning. The FSLA at once provides a means to organize knowledge in educational administration, an approach to practice that frames what schools can do to improve student learning, and a way to think about reconceptualizing principal preparation. Additionally, the FSLA and the proposed annual case process facilitate codification of craft knowledge for dissemination and use across unique school settings and preparation programs.
