      As a new leader, it can feel as though you have to learn everything all at once and know how to do it perfectly. That's why templates and guides can be your best friends—a good protocol can provide a framework for structuring meetings, analyzing data, or organizing professional learning activities and other events.
      The School Reform Initiative, recently acquired by the Center for Leadership and Educational Equity, offers a library of free protocols for educators on a wide range of topics. New leaders can browse the list by title, subject, or date added.
      Discover ice breakers and activities to gauge your team's communication style and help build relationships with your new staff. Examine ways to discuss student work samples with PLCs. Analyze and reflect on your administrative team's best successes and areas of growth. Whatever your need as a new leader to create structure and processes with your team, chances are there's a protocol that can help you get started.

      EL’s experienced team of writers and editors produces Educational Leadership magazine, an award-winning publication that reaches hundreds of thousands of K-12 educators and leaders each year. Our work directly supports the mission of ASCD: To empower educators to achieve excellence in learning, teaching, and leading so that every child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
