Tiffany-Morales, J., Wechsler, M., Greenwald, E., & Radcliffe Escobar, J. (2103). Evaluation of the High School Leadership Initiative Year 3: Final Evaluation Report. SRI International, Menlo Park, CA.
For more than 25 years, the mission of the California Academic Partnership Program (CAPP) has been to improve California’s secondary schools. Jointly administered by the California State University and the University of California, in cooperation with the California Community Colleges and the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, CAPP prides itself as an incubator for innovative approaches to improving the academic quality of public secondary schools. In 2007, CAPP began the High School Leadership Initiative (HSLI). SRI was contracted in 2011 to conduct an independent evaluation of HSLI. This final evaluation report draws on three years of data collection to tell the story of HSLI—what HSLI was, how the initiative supported principal and teacher leadership development, what changes occurred in HSLI schools, and what evidence exists that HSLI has built a lasting legacy of effective leadership in participating schools.
