Leading school turnaround is complex work, but research shows that there are specific competencies that school leaders need for successful turnaround efforts. This professional learning module can help regional comprehensive centers and state education agency staff learn how to use these competencies to recruit, select, and provide ongoing support to school principals working in a turnaround context. The material was developed through a partnership among four organizations: the Center on Great Teachers and Leaders, The Center on School Turnaround, Public Impact, and University of Virginia (UVA) Darden/Curry Partnership for Leaders in Education. The module is divided into three parts: Part 1: Understanding Turnaround Leader Competencies; Part 2: Recruiting and Selecting Turnaround Leaders; and Part 3: Developing and Retaining Turnaround Leaders (Part 3 resources are coming soon!) Each part inlcudes Facilitator's Guide, Slides and Handouts.
