“School leadership is second only to teaching, among school-related factors, in its impact on student learning, according to research” - The Wallace Foundation

Rhode Island Standards for Educational Leaders (RISEL)

According to a 2004 study completed by the Wallace Foundation, the impact strong school leadership can have in schools, particularly high-poverty schools, is paramount after teacher effectiveness. The Rhode Island Department of Education is focusing on strengthening leadership in Rhode Island schools in a variety of ways, including the creation, adoption, and implementation of the newly refreshed Rhode Island Standards for Educational Leaders (RISEL).

Created by a workgroup consisting of teachers, principals, superintendents, and RIDE, the RISEL communicate the values, knowledge, and skills required to be an effective district level or school level leader in today’s world. The RISEL will influence leadership preparation, hiring, development and retention practices and inform the work of educational leaders across our state.
