EDL 606 - Organizational Leadership in Schools

Credits: 3
This course is designed to be an overview of the theory and the practical components of leading organizations with specific emphasis on the schools and school districts in which candidates work. Candidates will examine their own leadership skills and attributes and those associated with effective leadership. Candidates will develop an understanding of the importance of mission, vision and core values, and of climate and culture within their own workplaces to understand that schools and school districts, as examples of all organizations, are living, dynamic entities and how that reality impacts leadership practice, staff recruitment and retention, student achievement, and service to the diverse communities they serve. Special attention will be placed on understanding change and leading change to ensure that the needs of all students are met equitably.
