Grow Leadership Expertise and Increase Student Success

To drive transformative change and impact student achievement, leaders must focus on the most beneficial priorities. BrightBytes, in partnership with McREL International, the foremost authority in the science of educational leadership, helps organizations identify these priorities and focus on implementing them.   

Effective Leaders Improve Student Achievement 

Extensive research has identified 21 leadership responsibilities correlated to student achievement.  Grounded in this research, the BrightBytes Leadership module provides a 360° view of the effectiveness of school leadership, identifies areas in need of improvement, and delivers research-based content to grow leadership expertise. The module also tracks the success of initiatives by providing insight into potential roadblocks and illustrating how teachers feel about what they are being asked to do.
