"Everything rises and falls on leadership." -John Maxwell

Leadership is continuing to emerge as a vital element in school improvement efforts. Research has shown that, second only to teaching, leadership is a key influence on student success. This presentation will address the topic of leadership as a critical element in roles of school psychologists. Specifically, we will explore:

  1. Supporting the school psychologist's role in becoming an essential contributor to schools' missions
  2. Promoting a culture of leadership within the field of school psychology
  3. Reinforcing the school psychologist's role in promoting research-based school improvement
  4. Fostering the development and implementation of leadership skills within the field of school psychology

The broad conference goals to create our future for leadership by and for school psychologists include:

  1. Define leadership by and for school psychologists.
  2. Identify local, state/provincial, national, and/or international strengths that will promote development of leadership by and for school psychologists.
  3. Identify local, state/provincial, national, and/or international challenges that will inhibit development of leadership by and for school psychologists.
  4. Identify resources in existing structures (e.g. professional organizations, local and state education agencies, research, graduate programs) that will support leadership by and for school psychologists.
  5. Identify systems-level and individual opportunities to research, promote, and demonstrate leadership by and for school psychologists.
