It’s a common headache for central office leaders: the expectations and goals for principals have changed, but not everybody in the central office knows what those changes mean and how to deal with them.
When focusing on instructional improvement, tackling these challenges and building a shared understanding of the principal’s role are key. Hillsborough County Public Schools, a large school district in Tampa, Fl., took on this difficult issue and showed impressive results.
CEL Associate Director Max Silverman, Amanda von Moos, managing director at The Central Office Project, and Tricia McManus, executive director of leadership development in Hillsborough County Public Schools, share tried-and-tested strategies to help central office staff understand principals’ jobs and how they can best support principals’ work to improve student learning.
In this webinar you will learn:
How 73% of Hillsborough central office leaders came to understand the primary role of the principal as instructional leader
How to engage central office leaders from all departments in thinking about how they support principals
Replicable strategies for use in central offices of all sizes
In this webinar, we introduce the second iteration of the Principal Support Framework and share a few useful resources from Hillsborough County Schools.
