School systems in many parts of the world face growing pressure to provide evidence of the effectiveness of programmatic, instructional, and policy decisions. Faced with limited resources (human, financial, and skill-based), this is a challenging task for educational leadership practice and the development of new leaders. This session presents the conception, roll out, and considerations of a multi-district partnership with a university and non-profit evaluation agency designed to provide real-time research and program evaluation services to local school districts, long-term research support, and build capacity for sustained research by the preparation of doctoral candidates working within these districts. Participants will contribute to conversations around the partnership model, sustainability, and applications in their own local context.
