Aspiring Leader
Aspiring Leader 3

The School Leadership Center calls Principals to “tap” teachers who want to train as the next generation of school leaders through the innovative Aspiring Leaders Program. The year-long program requires teachers to attend 4 sessions (28 clock hours) during the academic school year to focus on building a stronger school improvement plan, inviting critique into school administration, and designing school technology components. Aspiring Leaders is a serious examination of leadership, management, curriculum implementation, and supervision skills which propel the participants to envision themselves as future Principals or school leaders. Class size is limited to 50 registrants and Aspiring Leaders can earn up to 25 CLU’s for participating.

Classes meet during two, Friday/Saturday sessions, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Program fees include all materials, lunch, and snacks. Our 2017-2018 dates are Friday, November 10; Saturday, November 11; Friday, January 26; and Saturday, January 27.

Note: These dates have changed from the original posting. We will no longer meet Sept. 29 / 30; instead, the Program will now begin Nov. 10 / 11.
