Principal Leadership Institute

The Principal Leadership Institute, in cooperation with the Tri-State Area School Study Council, is pleased to invite your district to participate in the Principal Leadership Institute Workshops for the 2016-2017 school year.

The four workshop sessions will consist of timely and relevant themes: Inspiring Leadership, e.g., culture and climate, decision making, vision, communication, and dealing with conflict; Technology Movement, e.g., the Maker Movement, FabLab, STEM/STEAM, and connections with the arts; Instruction and Learning, e.g., motivating and developing others, supervision of instruction, instructional strategies, teacher evaluation, and other statewide initiatives; and Legal Issues for School Administrators, e.g., social media use, values and ethical behavior, and equality for all students.

Principal Leaders will be mentored by successful educators and will be able to network with administrators from other districts.  The lead session facilitators are Dr. Mary Anne Battaglia, Dr. Kathleen Harrington, Dr. Lawrence Kushner, and Dr. Terrence Kushner.  The Principal Leader Institute Workshops will be especially helpful to new principals and those districts using Succession Planning in order to keep and grow quality leaders in their district.
