Recognizing that strong school leadership is directly connected to effective management of operations of resources and process, an education leader promotes the success of every student by ensuring the management of the organization, operations, and resources for a safe, efficient, and effective learning environment. In the Inquiry into School Management Learning Strand, candidates engage in collaborative inquiry into fiscal and human capital resource management, including resource allocation, legal issues, and students services systems. The overarching concepts of ethical and equitable leadership frame this inquiry. Clinical experiences in the learning strand call on participants to engage in these aspects of management, while performance assessments require critical research based analysis and written reflection.

Above and beyond these activities, educators can elect to do an additional exploration of research as it informs their practice.
