The mission of the Leadership Development is to increase student achievement by developing quality leaders who invest in others. Approximately 118,000 students enter the schools of CFISD daily with the promise of a quality education that prepares them for life. Critical to their success is the quality of the classroom teacher and the ability of their leaders to provide safe schools focused on effective instruction, successful and efficient organizational management, and strong partnerships with parents and the community. This can only be achieved within an organization that is focused on investing in the continuous growth and professional development of its leaders at all levels.
Cypress-Fairbanks ISD will be a premiere district in terms of how we invite, engage, develop, support and maximize the incredible strengths and talents of its leaders.
- We believe quality leaders improve student achievement.
- We believe leaders grow leaders.
- We believe leadership development must be systemic, individualized and ongoing.
LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE
The Cypress-Fairbanks ISD Leadership Development Committee (LDC) is leading the initiative on improving leadership development throughout the district. The LDC is made up of principals, associate principals, directors of instruction, assistant principals, heads of departments and partners in higher education. Beginning in the Fall of 2012, the committee embarked on an eight-month process to gather information and conduct a comprehensive needs assessment while examining existing practices. As a result, the LDC identified priority areas and developed a course of action for achieving the desired results.
