South Carolina has adopted rigorous standards for students, teachers, and school leaders. The Expanded Program for Assisting, Developing, and Evaluating Principal Performance (PADEPP) Standards and Criteria play an essential role in South Carolina’s standards-based system. Current research consistently indicates that effective principals communicate and distribute leadership to engage all educators in realizing a vision for high quality teaching and improved student learning and growth. Chris Minnich, Executive Director of the Council of Chief State School Offices (CCSSO), points out that “The demands on school leaders have never been greater. To meet these new challenges, talented principals are essential.” With the adoption of the revised standards for principals, South Carolina has clearly defined the traits and skills of effective leaders that are aligned to the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders 2015 (formerly known as ISLLC Standards), the Every Student Succeeds Act 2015 (ESSA), and the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate. These standards will promote the most effective leadership practices among South Carolina’s principals, and the result will be an educational system in which all educators and students excel.
