Conference Description:

Standard 3d of the North Carolina Standards for School Executives requires school leaders to address teacher efficacy and empowerment by developing a sense of efficacy and empowerment among staff which influences the school’s identity, culture and performance.

Research has found that building collective teacher efficacy has the greatest impact on student achievement—even higher than factors like teacher-student relationships, home environment, or parental involvement. It also has found that the school leader is critical to creating an environment wherein teachers that they are valued, understood and empowered to make decisions that affect them and the way that they teach.

This conference will address ways in which school leaders can build a sense of efficacy among teachers.
