School administrators navigate the dynamic complexities and subtleties of their schools every day. They promote, facilitate, and lead efforts to achieve both tangible and intangible results throughout the school community. Their roles are crucial for school and student success. This course will provide district and school administrators with the depth of learning and coaching skills needed to bring the critical functions of instructional leadership to life. Participants will focus on the following topics in the workshops throughout the year:

  •  Prepping and supporting teacher practice that leads to student learning
  •  Creating an instructional leadership plan to propel the work forward
Each of these areas will be explored so that Arizona leaders have the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to create a school culture that empowers teachers to take charge of their professional learning and growth and build their capacity to address instructional practices that lead to student success.
