Webinar Offers Lessons on Assessing, Enhancing Principal Pipeline
Did you miss the latest installment in the Principal Pipeline Initiative webinar series, “Assessing and Enhancing Commitment”? Don’t fret: We’ve posted the recording to our Resource Library, along with other archived content from this fall’s series, sponsored by the Wallace Foundation.
Presenters in this third webinar in the free series included participants in the pipeline initiative: Debra Morris of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Michelle Young of the University Council for Educational Administration and the University of Virginia, and Jevelyn Bonner-Reed of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (NC). These panelists discussed their experiences and concerns related to planning, implementation, data collection, preassessment protocols, mentoring, and assessment as well as the impact of the district and partner activities on student learning, principal quality, and school improvement.
Moderated by AACTE Senior Director Linda McKee, the webinar also addressed questions pertaining to current principals’ need for professional development, their impact on school climate and teacher performance, and the role of external constituents in principal preparation.
The final webinar in the series, “Expanding the Framework,” will be held January 13 at 12:00 p.m. EST. This event will discuss the evolving impact of national standards, professional associations, and district and other partners on principal preparation—and their possible future directions. Consider the influence of regulatory and policy expectations along with lessons learned from the initiative. Explore next steps and strategies for potential replication and rollout in other partnerships.
