CALL Introductory Video

From the CALL community

"The CALL survey enabled our staff and, in particular, the School Based Leadership Team to assess our areas of strength and our areas of challenge. Focusing on two areas of challenge and celebrating the areas of success made us able to concentrate fully on one important aspect of school improvement at a time. We would recommend that all schools take the time to complete this survey."

Kay Enright, Retired Principal, Madison Metropolitan School District

"CALL is the best instrument we have found to assess whether and how our work with schools is making a difference. CALL tells us whether those adult behaviors that precede changes in student learning are happening as a routine way of doing business. As a bonus feature, taking the survey and diving into the data has launched critical conversations with principals, AP’s, and teacher leaders. Folks often think they are 'already doing it' but the specificity of items in CALL helps drive home what practice should look like on a day-to-day basis to get results that matter for students."

Leslie Hazle-Bussey, Chief of Staff, Georgia Leadership Institute for School Improvement

"Our members who take the CALL survey often tell us that the CALL instrument helps them identify strengths and weaknesses of learning leadership, from which they can approach continuous improvement efforts in a more informed manner."

Joe Schroeder, Associate Executive Director, Association of Wisconsin School Administrators

"CALL affords our principal members with an important picture of leadership action happening broadly on the campus. Data from the survey not only provides insight about growth and strength areas, but also points leaders in the right direction about what steps to take to improve leadership work that directly influences student outcomes."
