Every summer, newly appointed and veteran principals attend the Principals Academy.
This year, it will take place July 20 through 22. Also this summer, the school district will resume the Assistant Principals Academy, scheduled for July 25. The purpose of these professional learning sessions is to convene the district’s instructional leaders in one room to strategize on concrete ways to increase student achievement.
From being ready for the first day of school to applying better uses of technology, principals, academy leaders and assistant principals will spend time on teaching, learning and leadership approaches that can be put to use in the 2011-12 school year.
