The AWSP Leadership Framework is designed to promote the growth of the school leader in areas most likely to result in increased student achievement. It directly aligns with Washington state evaluation criteria, rules, and regulations.
Required Leadership Framework Trainings
Did you know that anyone who supervises a principal or assistant principal is required to attend 12 hours of state-required AWSP Leadership Framework training? For more information, call the AWSP office at 800.562.6100 or check out the TPEP Events calendar
on the OSPI website.
Evidence of Impact Tool
AWSP's Evidence of Impact Tool is designed to help encourage school leaders in conversations about the impact of leadership. It is not an evaluation form, but helps you work through several thoughts on leadership: What is your Problem of Practice (POP) and Theory of Action (TOA)? What makes you an effective leader? How do you know you had an impact?
The tool and additional details can be found in the AWSP Leadership Framework on pages 56-57.
Support for Your Leadership Growth
The AWSP Leadership Framework includes one page per criterion to help guide your leadership journey. These pages are similar to the past User’s Guide and provide suggestions to help you plan, implement, assess, and reflect for your professional growth. In an effort to stay current, we created expanded versions of criterions pages, including tools and resources.
If you have new resources to suggest or add that might help other grow their own leadership, reach out to us
