The charge of the School/University Partnerships and Selection Process Redesign Team is to develop draft criteria for school/university partnerships as part of the new approval criteria for principal preparation programs. Local school districts, most particularly the students, families, teachers and other school staff in those districts, bear the most important consequences of school leader preparation programs. Recommended criteria should include the inclusion of districts to co-design, co-implement, and co-assess new principal preparation programs. Criteria must meet the revised state standards, help respond to the leadership needs of school districts throughout the entire state, and support the continuum of principal development from pre-service through distinguished principal status. Recommendations from this redesign team must also consider other possible organizations qualified to contribute to these programs.
