By Dr. Ericka McCarroll

Leadership Facilitator

The purpose of the LRSD Aspiring Leadership Institute is to identify, recruit, and groom school-based leaders to assume leadership positions in the near future within the Little Rock School District.  The institute is framed around the newly adopted professional standards for educational leaders which are:

  1. Mission, Vision, and Core Values
  2. Ethics and Professional Norms
  3. Equity and Cultural Responsiveness
  4. Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment
  5. Community of Care and Support for Students
  6. Professional Capacity of School Personnel
  7. Professional Community for Teachers and Staff
  8. Meaningful Engagement of Families and Community
  9. Operations and Management
  10. School Improvement

This four-session institute will provide participants with rigorous and thought-provoking activities to extend thinking and practices around the leadership standards.  All participants are expected to be fully engaged, arrive on time, and attend each themed session from 4:30-8:00 p.m.:
