NEW! Provide Feedback on New Proposed Rhode Island Standards for Education Leaders

The Rhode Island Department of Education's vision for success by 2020 includes a strong focus on supporting and growing our education leaders to lead high quality schools that truly prepare students for success in college and careers in the future.  The  proposed standards were created in 2017 by an advisory workgroup consisting of superintendents, principals, teachers, and RIDE staff, and are meant to describe the knowledge and skills of highly capable school leaders of 21st century learning.

Please consider reviewing the proposed standards and giving your feedback by Friday, December 15, 2017.
