School Improvement (Change) Project

September 2021 | University of Connecticut

This resource from the UConn Administrator Preparation Program (UCAPP) at the University of Connecticut provides guidelines for the program’s capstone competency assessment task. The resource describes the School Improvement (Change) Project, which requires candidates to lead a group of stakeholders in an inquiry cycle to address a specific problem of practice for school-level improvement. Candidates are required to document their efforts in a School Improvement Report that includes discussion of the problem and context; data, decisions, and improvement plan; outcomes; sustainability plan; and individual reflection. The competency assessment is aligned to the National Educational Leadership Preparation Standards.
