9781118834411: High-Payoff Strategies: How Education Leaders Get Results

Focus on the right things

An education leader’s job can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Research shows that by spending time on just a few high-payoff strategies, leaders can bring about the meaningful change their schools and districts need.

High-Payoff Strategies helps administrators lead successful change initiatives by focusing on the three top priorities identified by research and practitioners alike: fostering a supportive district and school culture, leading instructional change, and building a learning community among faculty and staff.

Drawing on the latest research as well as hundreds of interviews with education leaders, High-Payoff Strategies reveals what it really takes to bring about school turnaround. The book includes rich and varied examples showing how real-world education leaders—in urban, suburban, and rural settings—have successfully led changes in their schools and districts. It also provides tools that readers can use immediately to put these practices in place, together with videos demonstrating the practices in action. High-Payoff Strategies helps education leaders create schools and districts that support teachers and make a difference in the lives of children.

From the Back Cover:

PRAISE FOR HIGH-PAYOFF STRATEGIES

"There are tens of thousands of books on education leadership. This is the one to read. Drawing on years of extensive experience, Spiro offers clear and compelling guidance for effective school leadership that should be read by all who hold or aspire to hold such positions and those who work with them."
ARTHUR LEVINE, President, Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation and President Emeritus, Teachers College, Columbia University

"This is a must-read for any education leader who seeks effectiveness and excellence in support of student learning."
WILLIAM R. HITE Jr., Superintendent, School District of Philadelphia

"As a leader, I often question if we're focusing on the 'right' things. Spiro's strategies have created clarity for me and a focus for leading change. I'm much more confident that we are focused on the right things so we can achieve the results we are looking for."
DOREEN KNUTH, Principal, Carter Lake Elementary School, Carter Lake, IA
