New Principal Academy 2020

Tools for the Principalship:
Preparing Novice Campus Principals to Become Highly Qualified Leaders

July 9-12, 2020
Trinity University, San Antonio

Due to the current status of the Corona Virus 19 and its impact on school districts, TASSP is canceling the New Principal Academy. The NPA was scheduled for July 9-12, 2020 at Trinity University. TASSP regrets any inconvenience this may cause on training new and aspiring administrators. TASSP is very proud of the quality of this professional development and the master teachers who lead the training. We will reinstate the New Principal Academy in the Summer of 2021. Keep watch on the TASSP website for updated information.

Best regards.

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 2020 program will be the 22nd 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."

"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 ..."
