Managing a School District - Module 4
Click to ExpandDirections
Attached is my Portfolio Paper discussing the impact NCLB legislation has had upon the management of a school district (Module 4).

Rationale
This assignment addresses all six ISLLC standards in that NCLB legislation has had such a broad impact upon education that all standards must be considered/involved in order to comply with the act.
AZ- Arizona Professional Administrative Standards
Standard 4: The administrator effectively manages services, programs, operations, and resources. The performance assessment shall measure the extent to which the administrator:
Performance Indicator 2: Defines and uses effective processes for gathering, analyzing, and using data for decision making;
Performance Indicator 8: Secures, allocates and manages human and material resources;
Performance Indicator 11: Demonstrates understanding of employee benefits and alternative employee benefits packages;
Performance Indicator 12: Identifies the potential legal issues affecting school personnel selection, development, supervision, retention, and dismissal;

Module 5/ Module 4H

Principal Interview - Module 5
Click to ExpandDirections
I've attached my paper, Advice to a New Principal for Module 5.

Rationale
Once again, I would say that this assignment addresses all six standards. To be effective all six standards must be addressed in order to effectively collaborate with the stakeholders of the learning community. Standard 4.0 stresses the ability to collaborate with stakeholders, so this would be the focal standard for this assignment.

Two APAS standards stand out from my interview. Improved communication (APAS Standard 3, Performance Indicator 4: Internal and External Communications), and time management (APAS Standard 5, Performance Indicator 5).
AZ- Arizona Professional Administrative Standards
Standard 3: The administrator implements positive and proactive communication strategies for effective parent and community involvement to improve the learning environment for all students. The performance assessment shall measure the extent to which the administrator:
Performance Indicator 4: Formulates and implements plans for internal and external communications;
Standard 4: The administrator effectively manages services, programs, operations, and resources. The performance assessment shall measure the extent to which the administrator:
Performance Indicator 5: Demonstrates project and time management skills;
