Join Us for AACTE’s Upcoming Webinar on High-Quality Principal Preparation

What Should High-Quality Principal Preparation Programs Look Like?The role of today’s principal is changing. Now, more than ever, school leaders need to be prepared from day one to succeed in a complex and ever-evolving school context. But what does quality principal preparation look like? How can principal preparation programs ensure that school leaders are ready to meet the demands of the job? Join us for our final webinar in the four-part series on principal preparation, a collaboration with the Wallace Foundation, to hear a panel of researchers and practitioners dig into the answers to both of these questions.

The discussion will include an overview of the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL) and the National Educational Leadership Preparation (NELP) standards and how preparation programs are partnering with districts to bring these standards to life. Practitioner voices will share their perspectives on what it takes to be prepared for today’s school leadership role.

Featured panelists for the webinar include 

  • Joan Auchter, Director, Professional Learning, National Association of Secondary School Principals
  • Timothy Drake, Assistant Professor/Researcher, North Carolina State University
  • Jamon Flowers, Graduate Assistant/Principal, William & Mary, School Leadership Institute

Registration is open for the What Should High-Quality Principal Preparation Programs Look Like? webinar, scheduled for 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, December 18. For more information about this webinar and the panelists, visit the webinar event page on AACTE’s website.
