School Leaders Licensure Assessment (SLLA)
The School Leaders Licensure Assessment (SLLA) is a performance-based assessment for the licensure of new school principals and assistant or vice-principals. The assessment was developed by ISLLC and ETS. The SLLA is grounded in research and linked directly to the ISLLC Standards for School Leaders. In collaboration with ETS, six states from the Consortium funded and developed an assessment for the initial licensing of beginning principals. The (SLLA) began national administration in October 1998. Arkansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, and North Carolina are using the SLLA for licensure, and several other states are in discussions with ISLLC and ETS to use the SLLA in their states.

April 8, 2002 News Release
U.S. Teachers' Salaries Fall Below Economic Trends
NEA Report Shows Teacher Salaries Not Keeping Pace With Education Investments Washington, D.C. - America's teachers did not reap the rewards of increased investment in public education during the 1990s, according to a report released today by the National Education Association (NEA), the nation's largest professional employee organization. To read the full report, visit Teachers' salaries increased by 3 percent during the decade spanning from 1991-2001 when adjusted for inflation. This increase works out to an average annual rate of 0.3 percent a year, according to NEA's report Rankings and Estimates 2000-2001 . During this same period, school revenue receipts, total expenditures, and per-pupil expenditures increased significantly. "As more money was invested in public education, teacher salaries remained stagnant - all while the U.S. was in a time of economic expansion," NEA President Bob Chase said. "If we, as a nation, are serious about student achievement, we need to make sure we can attract and retain high-quality teachers. Nothing has a more profound effect on a child's achievement than the quality of his or her teacher, and it's hard to convince someone to stay in the classroom when the salary is so low."

Technology Standards for School Administrators
TSSA Draft (v4.0)
The Collaborative for Technology Standards for School Administrators (TSSA Collaborative) has facilitated the development of a national consensus on what P-12 administrators should know and be able to do to optimize the effective use of technology. This consensus is presented by the Collaborative (November 2001) as Technology Standards for School Administrators (TSSA). The Collaborative believes that comprehensive implementation of technology is, in itself, large-scale systemic reform. Leadership plays a key role in successful school reform. The CollaborativeÕs standards, therefore, focus on the role of leadership in enhancing learning and school operations through the use of technology. These standards are indicators of effective leadership for technology in schools. They define neither the minimum nor maximum level of knowledge and skills required of a leader, and are neither a comprehensive list nor a guaranteed recipe for effective technology leadership. Rather, these standards are a national consensus among educational stakeholders of what best indicates accomplished school leadership for comprehensive and effective use of technology in schools. The standards challenge almost every school administrator in some areas, yet each individual standard is attainable by the professional education leader. Although a national consensus, in no way should these standards inhibit new development, innovation, or progress for schools or for school leadership.
