SDCOE is the only agency in California approved to teach the 5 Dimensions (5DTM) of Teaching and Learning instructional framework and Targeted Feedback Institute from the highly regarded University of Washington Center for Educational Leadership.

At the Principal Leadership Institute, both the framework and the institute are offered at a significant discount and are paired with the expertise and wisdom of SDCOE coaches, who were all effective and successful school principals.

The Principal Leadership Institute provides school leaders the opportunity to:

  • Develop expertise in classroom observation, analysis, and effective feedback using the 5DTM instructional framework.
  • Learn how using a strengths-based approach when providing feedback can accelerate improved practice.
  • Use descriptive evidence from classroom visits to connect improving teacher practice to improving student learning.
  • Assess and reflect on the qualities of an effective leader using SDCOE's Systems Leader Framework.
