Central Office Leadership Framework 

The Central Office Leadership Framework represents the work of dedicated administrators from WASA’s Instructional Program Administrators Component (IPAC) which began in 2010. The purpose of this document is to provide a framework for defining roles and responsibilities for district administrators, which align with Washington State’s new teacher and principal evaluation process. The framework supports a shift from central office departments working independently, toward collaboratively working together to develop assistance relationships with principals and schools. Current law for evaluating administrators does not require the use of this framework, the rubrics or a rating system (RCW 28A.405.100). However, this document may serve as guidance as districts begin to transition to a professional growth system for all educators.
