Superintendents Share Advice for Improving Principal Pipeline
In a new series of short videos, superintendents of six large, urban school districts around the country share lessons for improving development of leaders for their districts’ schools. AACTE members working to prepare leaders for schools and districts may find the videos to be a useful resource for their candidates.
The series features the superintendents in Charlotte-Mecklenburg (NC), Denver (CO), Gwinnett County (GA), Hillsborough County (FL), New York (NY), and Prince George’s County (MD), which have been participating in the Wallace Foundation’s Principal Pipeline Initiative for several years. (AACTE is a communications partner for the initiative and, along with its members, is devoting new attention to principal preparation, beginning with a survey this fall.)
Each video provides a personal perspective on key lessons for partnering with universities, cultivating assistant principals, planning for principal vacancies, and more. The videos build on a report issued earlier this year, Districts Taking Charge of the Principal Pipeline.
The series of eight videos is available here.
