Course Description
Policy implementation, supervision of teaching and the leadership of learning, staff evaluation,
and program accountability play a key role in transformational educational leadership and are a
major focus in this course. Participants discuss and write extensively about policy
implementation that is culturally and linguistically responsive in promoting learning.
Participants are challenged to develop skill sets they require to involve the community and parent
