SPHS makes Mardi Gras Plaquemines Parish Schools benefit from baskets for servicemen principals' training to improve performance

The Belle Chasse Primary School in Plaquemines Parish hosted 30 principals from area schools at the School Leadership Center "coaches" training for principals. The principals develop their leadership skills to improve the academic performance in their respective schools. Principals from schools in Plaquemines Parish, the Orleans Recovery School District, and St. James Parishes attended. Part of the training consisted of a "Learning Walk" through the Belle Chasse Middle School. Principals went through the school with their peers, and studied how the students are learning as a way to evaluate the teaching experience. It is a critique that gives the principals a new way to look at academic performance and address issues. The afternoon was comprised of a professional development seminar with Ann VanSickle, former Executive Director, Educational Leadership Development Academy at the University of San Diego. "As I travel around the country, I see school districts striving for improvement," said VanSickle. "Unless we deal directly with the instructional core of education, improving the teaching and learning in classrooms, we will continue to ineffectively circle around what is important. The Coaching Model here builds on what has been learned from other successful national initiatives." "This training method has provided me with a unique support system and collaboration with peers that I have not found any other way," said Maria Prout, the principal of Boothville-Venice Elementary School. The School Leadership Center, now in its 12th year, offers this Coaching Program to veteran and second year principals as a long-term mentoring program. "The Coaching Model has successfully served as a catalyst to improve classroom instruction in seven schools districts during the last three years," says program director Janice Bernard. "Through the Coaching Model principals develop a leadership voice and also become stronger instructional leaders." This program is important because it translates into better academic performance at the schools involved - measured success in improved scores by

Good school leadership and resulting teachers' success are a win-win situation for students, parents and the community. Studies have shown an impressive 54 percent student score improvement in schools in SLC training programs. "These schools are taking active steps to improve their standing as some of the strongest in Louisiana," said Dr. Brian Riedlinger, Director of the School Leadership Center. "This program is not about theory, it is about real-life situations that principals face. It creates strategies to meet their needs, improve desired outcomes and independent studies show that it works."
