Support public policies and administrative procedures that provide for present and future needs of all children and families and improve equity and excellence in education. 

Support for public policies: Educational leaders play a critical role in advocating for and supporting public policies that address the present and future needs of all children and families. This involves actively engaging in policy discussions, collaborating with policymakers and stakeholders, and advocating for policies that promote equity, excellence, and access to quality education for all students. By supporting public policies, educational leaders can influence systemic change and create conditions that enable every child to reach their full potential.

  • Advocacy for administrative procedures: Educational leaders advocate for administrative procedures that prioritize the needs of all children and families and align with principles of equity and excellence in education. This may include advocating for transparent and equitable resource allocation, culturally responsive practices, inclusive decision-making processes, and data-driven approaches to improve outcomes for students from diverse backgrounds. By advocating for administrative procedures that support equity and excellence, educational leaders can ensure that schools and districts are responsive to the needs of their communities and are committed to continuous improvement.
