July to May
A yearlong program that builds leadership skills for new and experienced district leaders who supervise principals and who are committed to improving their practice. When you join this program, you join a community of 58 principal supervisors working across 23 districts in 13 states, who collectively reach 700 principals and 400,000 students.
Foundations of Principal Supervision is a yearlong program that brings together principal supervisors from across the country. It is comprised of three learning components:
- Summer institute: July 15-19, 2019
- Virtual learning community
- Year-end convening: Spring 2020 (location TBD – outside NY)
- 1:1 coaching
Foundations focuses on specific skills and competencies crucial to the principal supervisor role, including leading for instruction, developing principals through coaching, and leading effective professional learning. Participants practice these skills in authentic simulations and receive feedback from instructors and peers. During the program, principal supervisors work with real data from their districts, giving them practical experience that reflects challenges they will encounter on the job and the opportunity to prepare for the upcoming school year.
