NESSC High School Redesign in Action Conference
Session 3: Friday, March 18th, 9:15 am
While the design and implementation of proficiency-based learning requires the full participation of all stakeholders and involves all educators in schools and central offices, the role of principals in shepherding this transition is crucial. In addition to serving as instructional leaders who must have a full understanding of how to support the growth and development of teachers, principals must also be able to successfully navigate the sometimes challenging waters associated with leading this work, requiring significant amounts of moral courage, communication skills, and strategic thinking. Through texts, reflection, case studies, and discussions, participants will explore the foundational knowledge, skills, and attributes of successful principals leading personalized learning and will have an opportunity to consider valuable next steps to pursue in their own buildings.
