Professional Growth & Support System Self-Assessment

Assess How Your School System Aligns with the Eight Principles of Strategic Professional Growth & Support

Education Resource Strategies, May 2013

The Professional Growth & Support System Self-Assessment helps school systems evaluate their current Professional Growth & Support strategy against the Eight Principles of Strategic Professional Growth & Support. In each section, school leaders can identify the statement that most closely aligns with their system’s current reality, and tally the points for each principle. Lower numbers indicate the principles and practices where a system has the most room for growth, and will help leaders prioritize the next steps of their system’s evolution.
