1. Juracka, Stephen. Employee Engagement Through the Instructional Leadership Team.

Degree: EdD Doctor of Education, Educational Leadership, 2018, National-Louis University

<h1>ABSTRACT</h1> The Instructional Leadership Team (ILT) is an organizational structure designed to improve employee engagement, which for this project is defined as employee collaboration, autonomy, ownership and shared purpose, in the curriculum development process (Farris-Berg, 2013). This program evaluation, grounded in organizational theory, self-determination theory, and social exchange theory; it is aimed at validating the importance of creating an organizational structure designed to shape a cultural environment that supports employee ownership and autonomy while creating a social exchange economy that supports employee motivation. The Instructional Leadership Team created and initiated the ILT Engagement Survey to K-5 grade level teachers in the summer of 2015. The survey results validated the ILT, finding it to be an organizational structure increasing teacher collaboration, autonomy, ownership and shared purpose. The ILT Engagement survey also exposed areas that needed improvement, including the need for equal participation among grade level team members, a clarified ILT purpose, and a need for greater leadership training for grade level teacher leaders in order to support stronger grade level teams. Advisors/Committee Members: Kristen Lems, Jason Stegemoller, Harrington Gibson.

Degree: EdD Doctor of Education, Educational Leadership, 2018, National-Louis University

<h1>ABSTRACT</h1> This Policy Advocacy paper focuses on expanding the District ABC Staff Development policy to include Drago-Severson’s (2009) pillars of adult learning. Research indicates the inclusion of a mentorship program, professional learning communities, and teacher leadership opportunities, will increase teacher collaboration, engagement, and professional capacities. There are significant educational, economic, political, social, legal and moral implications associated with the proposed staff development policy. Additionally, the staff development policy requires careful planning, implementation, and assessment, as will be addressed in this Policy Advocacy paper.

3. Juracka, Stephen. Improving Professional Learning Community Structures for Enhanced Professional Practice.

Degree: EdD Doctor of Education, Educational Leadership, 2018, National-Louis University

<h1>ABSTRACT</h1> This Change Plan gauges the historical reality of the District ABC professional learning communities (PLC) to gain a better understanding of their past effectiveness and secure recommendations for the future. This Change Plan included a qualitative study conducted with the members of the Instructional Leadership Team (ILT). The ten members of the ILT provided feedback to the PLC Survey. The PLC survey was then coded for general themes and common language. The PLC Survey found that in past practice PLCs were absent within District ABC and collaboration among teachers was inconsistent and ineffective. Based upon the findings of the PLC survey I developed this Change Plan to include the development of PLC behavioral protocols, the creation of PLC collaboration structures, and professional development for PLC leaders. Advisors/Committee Members: Kristen Lems, Jason Stegemoller, Harrington Gibson.
