In 2012, the work of the Leadership Academy grew exponentially with the addition of the responsibility of conducting all of the state’s required Association of Washington School Principals (AWSP) evaluation trainings. WSLA trained more than 200 districts in the use of the AWSP’s frameworks and rubrics in preparation for the new evaluation system for principals.
Twenty-one Leadership Criteria Framework Feedback Specialists (LCFFS) deliver the training to districts that have adopted the AWSP Leadership Framework. The AWSP Leadership Framework was designed to promote the growth of the principal in areas that are most likely to result in increased student achievement. It directly aligns with Washington state evaluation criteria, rules and regulations.
