4D™ Smart Card
Among school-related factors, school leadership is second only to teaching in its potential influence on student learning. Instructional leadership is a critical aspect of school leadership. The work of instructional leaders is to ensure that every student receives the highest quality instruction each day. Doing so requires that instructional leaders lead for the improvement of the quality of teaching and for the improvement of student learning. The 4D Instructional Leadership Framework is not the sum total of the work of instructional leaders. Rather, it is a description of the most salient aspects of instructional leadership.
