Leadership Management

Mission Statement

Leadership Management aims to match the available talent (current Cobb employees and out-of-district applicants) to the needs of the District. It further assists the District in meeting the strategic and operational challenges facing it by having the right people in the right places at the right times to do the right things.


The vision of Leadership Management is to create a deliberate and systematic effort by the Cobb County School District to ensure leadership continuity in key positions, and encourage individual advancement.


  • To provide a sufficiently large and diverse number of highly qualified candidates to fill local school and central office administrative openings.
  • Assist principals and central office administrators in their selection process.
  • Assist applicants, both internal and external, in completing leadership applications and understanding the system’s leadership selection process.
  • Provide career counseling and guidance through informal office visits, as needed.
  • To help individuals realize their career objectives in administration.
  • Forecast replacement needs as a means of targeting necessary training, employee education, and employee development.
  • To provide excellent customer service to the Cobb County School District’s internal and external leadership applicants.

Cobb County School’s Core Competencies

Cobb County’s Human Resource Division, in conjunction with school and district leadership, has developed a set of core competencies that, when demonstrated, enhance the probability of a Principal’s success.

This set of standards serves as a consistent thread that runs through our interview, selection and leadership development processes.   They allow for us to clearly articulate that which makes a successful Cobb County Principal.

Core Competencies

  1. Establishes a strategic direction and clear vision for instruction
  2. Shapes organizational culture and climate through meaningful relationships with stakeholders
  3. Ensures students’ physical, social and emotional safety
