Principal Supervisor Academy

OVERVIEW

You know that successful principal supervision requires new ways of supporting principals in a partnership role — leading by teaching and learning in an atmosphere of mutual accountability. You want to see principal performance improve at scale but find it challenging to lead for it.
 
The Principal Supervisor Academy will give you a leadership strategy that’s centered on supporting instructional leadership growth across your school. 

WHAT YOU’LL GAIN

  • Students say that they are engaged, challenged and supported. Students demonstrate improvements in learning
  • Teachers say that they are supported. Teachers are improving their instructional practice
  • Leaders are able to use a teaching and coaching approach for improving principal performance

 

WHO IT’S FOR

Our Principal Supervisor Academy is for all central office leaders who support principals’ development as instructional leaders.
“My leadership practice has changed as a result of the Principal Supervisor Academy. I now have the tools to focus specifically on the things that matter the most in affecting educational outcomes.”
 
– Vickie Poe, Assistant Superintendent, Dallas County School District, Selma, AL
