The National SAMs Innovation Project provides a comprehensive process and set of tools designed to develop effective instructional leaders resulting in greater student success.  NSIP’s mission is to extend the SAM process to all schools in every state to create greater teacher and learner success.

The SAM process uses a unique set of tools to change a principal’s focus from school management tasks to instructional leadership—activities directly connected to improving teaching and learning.  Over 1,200 school leaders in twenty-three states contract for SAM services.
