How Can Supervisors Shape Effective Principals?

Brought to you by Learning Forward, AASA, and The Wallace Foundation

April 26: 1-2 p.m. ET

Public: Watch this webinar

Today's school principals need support for their development and growth as society places higher expectations on them to be instructional leaders who improve student learning and achievement. A new first-ever set of standards, developed by a committee of 12 educators led by the Council of Chief State School Officers whose work was supported by The Wallace Foundation, is intended to assist state education agencies and local school districts to help recruit, select, support and evaluate supervisors of principals. The standards emphasize shifting the supervisor's role away from the traditional focus on bureaucratic compliance toward fostering the growth of effective principals who improve both teaching and learning.

This free webinar is sponsored by Learning Forward and AASA.

Participants will:

  • Learn about the standards cited in the Model Principal Supervisor Professional Standards 2015 and ways in which they could adopt and internalize these new standards within their districts.
  • Hear how High School District 214 in Illinois is applying Standards 1 and 2 to improve the effectiveness of its school leaders.
  • Learn about Learning Forward resources to support principal supervisors in meeting the needs of their principals.
