School districts, both small and large, are searching for new ways to ensure that principals get the skills, resources and time they need to be instructional leaders.
In this interactive institute hosted by the AASA, Stephen Fink (executive director), June Rimmer and Max Silverman (both associate directors) from the Center for Educational Leadership (CEL) will give central office leaders the background and tools necessary to understand what principals need and how to provide it.
Using the Council of Chief State School Officers principal supervisor standards as a guide, participants will have opportunities to self-assess how they currently support principals as well as plan for specific next steps. This session will be differentiated to ensure that a variety of district contexts will be addressed.
Attendees will be provided with CEL's Principal Support Framework and the 4 Dimension of Instructional Leadership™ as research-based frameworks to self-assess current practice, instigate action, and plan next steps teams can take back to their districts and implement during the school year.
The institute is an ideal professional learning opportunity for superintendents, principal supervisors and anyone responsible for principal professional development. The registration fee is $259 per person.
