The primary purpose of the Missouri Leadership Development System (MLDS) and the Leadership Specialist is the development and support of effective school leaders.
"Supporting and developing effective building principals is a critical component in helping all students reach their potential. Through broad-based collaborative effort, Missouri is moving beyond simply identifying leadership standards and competencies by intentionally building leadership capacity in support of our students, schools and communities."
- Missouri Commissioner of Education, Dr. Margie Vandeven
