The Leadership Standards for Principals and Vice-Principals in BC has been revised (2015) and is now available from the BCPVPA Professional Learning department. It will be available for download in early September. The Standards have four domains — “Moral Stewardship,” “Instructional Leadership,” “Relational Leadership,” and “Organizational Leadership” — and supporting individual standards. This document is not intended to be prescriptive in nature, but rather to be used to support the individual principal or vice-principal in reflecting on his or her learning needs. The purpose of the document is to foster continuous professional learning in working towards effective leadership; therefore, it is not intended as an instrument for evaluation or the judgment of the individual performance of principals and vice-principals by districts.
First published in 2007, The Leadership Standards for Principals and Vice-Principals in BC has become the document for professional growth in British Columbia.
