The Instructional Leadership Cycle introduces a multifaceted model for continuous school and system improvement, founded on an adaptable set of professional practices for K–12 leaders.


Allen provides a clear, concise, practical roadmap by which to guide district and site leaders to work collaboratively to set a vision for learning, identify problems of practice, design equity-based solutions to close the opportunity gap, and celebrate student success all while sharing lessons learned through the process. This is a must read for instructional leaders focused on school transformation efforts on all levels! — Alfonso Jiménez, Superintendent, Hacienda La Puente USD

Daniel Allen’s practical guide is a wonderful blend of theory, practical wisdom, and personal experience. We learn that instructional leadership begins in the summer when there is time for ‘slow’ thinking, that the ‘vision speech’ at the beginning of the school year must count for more than good feelings, and that a few key structures interact with the day-to-day influence of school leaders. — Rick Mintrop, Professor, University of California, Berkeley, and author of Design-Based School Improvement
