2018 – Present

RMC Research is collaborating with the Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Central at Marzano Research and the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to provide technical assistance to build capacity to evaluate the statewide Missouri Leadership Development System (MLDS). MLDS provides professional development and support to principals based on a set of essential competencies aligned with the Missouri Professional Standards for Education Leaders. Technical assistance involves close collaboration with state education agency staff to identify implementation components; desired outcomes for educators, schools, and students; and strategies for examining short- and long-term system outcomes.
