Improve the quality of education leadership provided by school principals and vice-principals and consequently improve the instructional program in district schools;
Recognize and encourage effective school leadership;
Assist the school principal and vice—principal in assessing his/her own performance;
Assist the principal and vice-principal in setting and pursuing professional growth opportunities and specific career objectives.
