Principal Supervisor Professional Learning and Coaching

OVERVIEW

You’re working to develop the relationships, systems and structures to help your principals do their best work. Do you have access to professional learning designed specifically for your work as a supervisor of school leaders?
 
Principal Supervisor Professional Learning and Coaching will support you to grow instructional leadership performance at scale. When principals learn in an atmosphere of mutual accountability — with principal supervisors leading by teaching and taking on a partnership role — teachers and students also learn better. 

WHAT YOU’LL GAIN

  • Students get access to meaningful learning opportunities.
  • Teachers say that they are better supported and able to tailor instruction for their students.
  • Leaders develop skills and practices for collaboratively improving principal performance.

 

WHO IT’S FOR

Principal Supervisor Professional Learning and Coaching is intended for central office leaders who support principals’ instructional leadership growth as their primary responsibility.

 

HOW IT WORKS

You’ll begin with a self-assessment, interviews with stakeholders and an analysis of structures to support principals. Professional learning opportunities will be organized around whole-team sessions and job-embedded coaching. The self-assessment is aligned to the Council of Chief State School Officers Model Principal Supervisor Professional Standards. 
 
Through CEL’s Instructional Inquiry Cycle you’ll explore research-based practices of effective principal supervisors and get support to apply those practices in your 1:1 relationships with school leaders, build principal networks and differentiate approaches for each principal. The methods include:
  • WORK FROM PROBLEMS OF PRACTICE        
  • CYCLES OF INQUIRY       
  • LEARN FROM CASE STUDIES   
  • EMBEDDED COACHING
