With the right focus and support, leadership skills can be acquired—so long as we are committed to helping leaders build the skills they need to succeed.
In 2015, School Leadership for Results: Shifting the Focus of Leader Evaluation provided a thorough exploration of the Marzano School Leader Evaluation Model and a practical guide to meeting the challenges of fair and accurate evaluation of instructional leaders. It encouraged schools all over the world to change their approach to leader evaluation, shifting the focus from simple measurement to real, effective evaluation based on growth.
Research into school leader evaluation has continued to evolve, and so has the Marzano School Leader Evaluation Model. Here in School Leadership for Results: A Focused Model, Beverly G. Carbaugh and Robert J. Marzano update their seminal work to reflect the most up to date literature and understanding of leadership roles and responsibilities, translating the research into six domains of action every school can take:
Keeping a Data-Driven Focus on School Improvement
Teaching a Visible and Guaranteed Curriculum
Fostering Continuous Development of Teachers and Staff
Creating a Community of Care and Collaboration
Maintaining Core Values
Managing Resources Effectively
Effective school leader evaluation is a collaborative, shared process of focused improvement—and it remains the only way to achieve school leadership for results.

“The leadership model described in this book has helped me support principals not only through evaluation but also through ongoing feedback and coaching. We see the Marzano Focused Leader Evaluation Model as a growth model, and it provides equity in evaluation and a common language for growth across our district with site leaders. Principals select areas for focused growth annually, and we work through those as well as other aspects of the model together over the course of the year, meeting multiple times and connecting the model to the work--making meaning of the multiple layers of their work--before finalizing the leadership evaluations in the spring."

"The highly anticipated release of this new book provides guidance in using The Marzano School Leader Focused Evaluation Model and clearly defines the support that district leaders can provide to school level leaders. The enhanced desired effects and lists of sample evidences lay out a clear path in this results-driven model. This book builds a bridge between current literature about school leadership and how to use the model in practice. It is both a practical and definitive guide for school leaders and enhances the ability for supervisors of school leaders to provide actionable feedback."
