Educational Leadership Electronic Portfolio

     In order to obtain my Master's degree in Educational Leadership at Grand Canyon University, I was required to establish and maintain an electronic portfolio of artifacts I created that are related to leadership in education. These artifacts should align themselves with the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL). These standards used to be known as the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium but were renamed in 2015 in order to associate the new standards with a way of thinking about leadership. These 10 standards establish the process by which professional educational leaders should govern the institutions with which they have been entrusted.

     Under each standard is a linked document that was created to address the principles that are embodied in the standard.

Standard 1: Mission, Vision, and Core Values - Effective educational leaders develop, advocate, and enact a shared mission, vision, and core values of high-quality education and academic success and well-being of each student.
