Framework for Vision-Driven Instruction and Leadership

by TASA Year Published: 2015

The Framework for Vision-Driven Instruction and Leadership is a document that outlines the roles that educators and school leaders should take to both support and advance MISSION: School Transformation as described in Creating a New Vision for Public Education in Texas. The framework can aid districts by providing a road map or blueprint to drive transformation internally. As a companion to the Implementation Matrix, it serves as a next step in unpacking district-developed future-ready learner, educator, and leadership profiles.

The framework was developed based on three major domains -- Domain 1: Architect the Experience; Domain 2: Act and Adjust Based on Data, Student Need, and Passion; and Domain 3: Accept and Encourage Alternate Routes. Working groups of stakeholders engaged in school transformation efforts in their districts collaborated to develop this powerful tool that supports the work in an authentic manner.

It should be used as a starting point for districts in determining future-ready instructional and leadership practices in their schools and classrooms. It is not a recipe or “one best formula” for leading future-ready transformation locally and should not be utilized as an evaluation tool, rubric, or grading system for transformation. It allows district leaders, principals, and teachers to customize its use based on the needs and contexts of their district, school, or classroom.
