ELCC 5.1 states that leaders act with integrity and fairness to ensure the success for all students; therefore, as an educational leader I will have to practice demonstrating principles of integrity and fairness, and know the federal, state, and local policies, guidelines and procedures.

Data is an easy way to assess student learning, and to ensure teachers are following the policies and procedures that are in place through the federal and state guidelines. As a leader, I will need to improve on my knowledge of the laws that are in place (which are is also stated in ISLCC standard 6), and research the best ways to assess my teachers and students according to these
