Advisory Councils

The Office of Governance and Leadership Development has established an advisory council for each region. The council comprises superintendents, assistant superintendents, principals, directors and supervisors who volunteer their time to share their expertise and knowledge in developing meaningful session topics and agendas for the Leaders Learning from Leaders Professional Learning Community Network. The advisory councils have been instrumental in identifying leaders’ needs and challenges, offering suggestions and promising practices for consideration. Additionally, members share the information discussed at meetings with colleagues in their districts, schools and/or with various organizations to ensure a collaborative effort that effectively meets the needs of school and district leaders.

Roles and Responsibilities of the Advisory Committee Members:

  1. Serve as the vehicle for the identification of regional leadership needs and opportunities.
  2. Identify school leaders who can provide evidence of “Effective Practices” which address current critical areas of school improvement and leadership development.
  3. Provide a high quality of professional development in a manner that fosters the creation of Professional Learning Communities (PLC’s) between and among participating schools/districts.
  4. Provide feedback, recommendations for improvement and updates on current research and studies.
  5. Provide input on the Governor’s Reform Agenda as it relates to the effective implementation of district and school leadership and governance issues.
