“As leaders, it is incumbent on all of us to make sure we are building a world in which every individual has an opportunity to thrive.” –Andrew Ng

    “From Surviving to Thriving”

    Professional Development: Leadership Development has committed to build learning experiences that align to leadership competencies from district, state, and national standards as well as other research about effective leadership. Our goal is to deepen engagement through seminars, meetings, and work sessions that offer a differentiate experience for our school-based leaders. Our work for SY 2022/23 began with the Summer Leadership Institute and will continue through our academies.

    Using the National Educational Leadership Preparation Program Standards, we have created an enriching hybrid experience for each academy. We are excited about the guest speakers, external mentors/coaches, and internal support that have come together to make all the academies impactful and relevant.

    • The New School Leaders (NSL) Academy is designed to be an on-boarding tool with continuous individualized support for newly identified school-based leaders.  New school leaders are those principals new to the role as well as those new to their context.
    • The Assistant Principal and Dean (APD) Academy was created for those currently in a school-based leadership evaluative role that wish to learn more about the principalship.
    • Level-Up Aspiring Leaders (LU) Academy was designed for All SLPS certified staff that have an interest in moving up in their careers at the district and school level. Excludes those APs and Deans who are more aligned to the AP&D Academy. Must have 3 years as a certified classroom teacher. This is the only academy that will require a short application in Nimble.
