The LEAD Tool

The Leadership for Equity Assessment & Development (LEAD) Tool helps schools and districts develop organizational leadership capacity for equity. Through a set of rubrics, leadership teams work together to eliminate race-, class-, and other group-based disparities in student opportunities and outcomes. Educational leadership students can also use the tool as part of their instructional and licensure coursework:

  • Provides professional learning resources including articles, videos, and the latest research
  • Aligns with the national Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium (ISLLC) Standards and with Oregon Educational Leadership/Administrator Standards
