What is the Indian Country School Leadership Institute (ICSLI)?
School leadership is a critical component of an effective school, district, and community. The Indian Country School Leadership Institute (ICSLI) is designed to help build capacity amongst school and district leaders serving Indigenous communities. This Institute is open to current and aspiring leaders for positions such as principal, assistant principal, superintendent, assistant superintendent, and other district-level leadership roles.
The ICSLI program will help school and district leaders develop and enhance leadership skills that align to serving Indigenous populations including cultural awareness, communication skills, problem solving, conflict resolution, community and governmental relationship building, policies and procedures, as well as other leadership skill sets to effectively work with Indigenous students, staff, leaders, and community members. The ICSLI program will guide leaders through collaborative discussions, problem solving, establishing platforms and philosophies for leadership development; as well as, applying leadership skills and research to build leadership capacity to serve indigenous populations.
Indian Country School Leadership Institute participants will engage in reviewing leadership topics, conducting literature reviews, and developing an action plan for increasing leadership capacities and conduct a thorough leadership action plan resulting in a Indigenous leadership guide for present and future leaders in Indigenous education systems.
Leaders create pathways for those they serve to succeed. ISCLI will help any school or district leader build capacity to become the best leader possible for the communities they serve.
