Educational leaders are often faced with complex issues that require action to meet state and federal requirements. To prepare to address these issues, school leaders should consider how they might use evidence-based practices and programs at the local level. For this assignment, consider an issue you might face and how you might resolve it as an educational leader using evidence-based practices or programs.
