The Council of Chief State School Officers has released the long-awaited set of professional standards for educational leaders.

The 10 standards, released to the public last month describe what effective school leaders should be able to know and do to lead high-achieving staff, schools, and students. They deal with an effective principal's role in hiring, school culture, equity, ethics, operations, and school vision and goals.

In describing what is new about the standards, the CCSSO said: "The standards recognize the central importance of human relationships not only in leadership work but in teaching and student learning. They stress the importance of academic rigor ... as well as the support and care required for students to excel."
