Assistant / Aspiring Principal Workshop

February 10 - 12, 2019 | Austin

This program is for ALL GRADE-LEVEL assistant principals, elementary through secondary, and for teacher leaders looking to become campus administrators.


Participate in three days of dynamic and practical training as you learn from master practitioners and build professional learning relationships with TEXAS ASSISTANT PRINCIPALS; current and aspiring!

The Assistant Principal Workshop offers a unique opportunity for leaders who work very closely with students on academic needs, work with teachers on instruction and work as a team on the management of student discipline, extra-curricular activities and more. This workshop has been a great success because the focus is on the role of one genre of leader…the assistant principal!

The workshop focuses on the AP as an instructional leader and lead teacher of teachers, a responsibility that is quite challenging when moving from the classroom to the administrative office. Also included in the agenda is training on documentation, school safety, legal updates, curriculum updates and more.
