Satellite Leadership Academy

Missouri’s Theory of Action, as documented in its state model evaluation system, maintains that improving student performance happens by improving the professional practice of the adults who guide and direct student learning. The Leadership Academy Program’s Plan of Study focuses on essential elements associated with researchbased performance development. These essential elements include the use of research-based performance targets; the use of multiple levels of performance that identify status and growth; the use of timely and deliberate meaningful feedback; and a relentless focus on the improvement of student performance outcomes.

Leadership Academy participants will develop and refine strategies to enhance and improve professional practice associated with improved student performance through a program that includes:
• Statewide and regional meetings
• Expertise in implementing quality educator development systems.
• Application of the effective use of data
• Networking opportunities with educators across the state

The Central/KC RPDC SLA Practioner Facilitators are:

  • Heidi Mackey, Principal, Knob Noster R-VIII
  • Jackie Duvall, Assistant Superintendent, Warrensburg R-VI
  • Gustava Cooper-Baker - Consultant
