If your school district will be hiring new principals, is in the process of grooming you for the principalship, or if you aspire to become a campus administrator this professional development is a must. The 2019 program will be the 21st annual TASSP New Principal Academy held in the serene retreat setting of Trinity University in San Antonio. The Academy offers any grade-level new principal (0-3 years) and aspiring principals a very practical hands-on training in skills for the principalship: Leadership and Team-building Skills; Best Hiring Practices and Human Resource Information; Crisis Management Training; Campus and Activity Fund Training; Documentation Skills; School Law as it relates to the campus principal; How to Avoid Career Derailing Mistakes; and so much more. This academy has been acclaimed as being very valuable and timely for any grade-level new and aspiring principal; here are just a few comments from the 2017 class:

"Good opportunities to network with colleagues during sessions and in between. Absolutely recommend! Great experience! A must for every administrator."
     ~ Alice Clayton, Principal, Angleton Junior High, Angleton ISD
"Above my expectations - fabulous speakers, great information and resources; networking is invaluable. I wish I had come a year ago!"
     ~ Julie Johnson, Principal, Nimitz Elementary, Kerrville ISD
"I've been in campus administration for six years now. This academy has provided me with a new outlook on school leadership and building a culture and climate that supports students. I plan on recommending this academy to veteran principals as well!"
     ~ Hector Dominguez, Principal, North Avenue Intermediate, Gonzales ISD

"I am so happy that I came. I have learned a ton of valuable information and met many new colleagues. This academy has clarified questions that I had about scheduling my time, documentation, and activity accounts. The presenters were great ..."
