Protecting ILD Time: District and CMO Leaders Talk About What it Takes

Protecting Instructional Leadership Directors' time for working directly with school leaders is one of the key design challenges in principal support. In this video, leaders from Prince George's County, Tulsa, Green Dot, Shelby County, Hillsborough, and Houston Public Schools talk about their ILDs' span of control, how they are managing calendars, and other strategies they are using to ensure that their ILDs have the time it takes to help principals grow as instructional leaders.

Guiding Questions:
1. What key strategies did these districts use to protect ILD time for work with principals? What is the district context that influenced these strategies?
2. How are these strategies similar to or different from the strategies you have in place in your district?
3. What are possible implications for your district?
