In his new book, author and international keynoter Douglas Reeves addresses a major challenge faced by todays school leaders: an ever-growing load of programs and initiatives. Reeves contends that program overload not only taxes leadership resources, but actually hurts rather than improves student performance. Drawing on recent research findings, this book shows how leaders can pare down from a proliferation of initiatives to determine what is truly most important based on their local concerns, challenges, populations, and other school factors. Identifying a specific set of leadership practices that are more strongly associated with improvements in student achievement, Reeves provides explicit guidelines for how school leaders can improve their most critical leadership decisions by simultaneously engaging in three essential strategies: monitoring teaching and leadership practices, building high degrees of efficacy among staff members, and focusing on a smaller number of priorities. Finding Your Leadership Focus is essential reading for new and veteran principals, teacher leaders, and PLC book study groups.

New edition of the definitive text thoroughly updated with information on Race to the Top, NCLB revisions, ESEA Reauthorization, federal, state and district responsibilitiesSpells out requirements and legislated mandates for special education, ESL, food service, disability, health services, gifted education, school to work, etc.For administrators in public, private and charter schoolsUsed as a text at Texas A&M, Houston, Michigan and many other universities Created for school administrators in public and private schools, this book is an update of the original 2005 volume that organized and explained virtually all federally mandated programs, the "third curriculum" that helps dictate how U.S. schools are managed. Used as a textbook in many universities, it lists and explains dozens of new U.S. laws and amendments from the past decade and situates them in the context of states and districts. It investigates the goals and requirements of dozens of education programs and clarifies government regulations affecting students as well as citizens who come in contact with schools, e.g., disabled individuals, job-seekers, employees, non-English-speaking parents and many other groups. Encompassing and yet going far beyond special education, the text offers pointers and case studies on how programs should be administered to improve learning outcomes as well as heighten a school's community profile. The detailed, concrete information in this book is indispensable for understanding government requirements, accessing the right agencies, reducing discrimination, and avoiding legal entanglements. At the same time, the 10 chapters of this volume are readily integrated into a syllabus for courses on special programs in schools.
