This paper discusses West Virginia's framework for 21st century schools. It particularly looks at the importance of leadership skills, such as visionary leadership, relational leadership, systems leadership, reflective leadership and collaborative leadership. It suggests that applying these leadership approaches while implementing West Virginia's framework for 21st century schools is essential if today's educators are to establish classroom environments conducive to effective, goal-oriented learning.

From the Paper:

"The culture of 21st Century schools should be based on setting and meeting high standards for staff and students. These high standards can be achieved through staff demonstrating professionalism in their dress, their use of language, and their demeanor, as well as the manner
in which they interact with students and other staff. This process involves defining, supporting, and implementing a collaborative school improvement process "that is data-driven and targets improved results for students," and requires effective leadership from principals, who are responsible for providing learning leadership "by orchestrating activities of the school toward students learning and developing a spirit of unity and trust." (WVDE)"
