First established in 2007, the Leadership Standards publication is designed as a guide to hold student and adult development, engagement, and learning central to all leadership practices. The Leadership Standards is recognized by B.C. educational leaders and partners including the B.C. Ministry of Education, and has received international recognition as a comprehensive and practical guide to educational leadership in British Columbia. 

The purpose of the Leadership Standards is to foster continuous professional learning and development in working towards effective leadership.

The document is not intended as an instrument of evaluation or to be prescriptive in nature, but rather to be used to support the individual Principal or Vice-Principal in identifying and reflecting on their own learning needs.
