Principals Academy

Naples, Florida July 18-22, 2004
Newport Beach, California
August 1-5, 2004


This Academy is open to principals and assistant principals.


The Principals Academy, first offered in July 2001, is designed for principals and assistant principals who have a deep understanding of and commitment to providing leadership for the core business: designing engaging work for students. Participants will develop deep understanding of fundamental concepts such as the nature of engagement, the core business, and marketing change. Principals will develop a personal plan for leadership, exploring the role of the principal, the principals' beliefs about schools and learning, appropriate strategies for causing and sustaining change related to the core business, the varied support systems needed to deepen the work related to the core business in her or his school, and other related topics.

For past participants, the Academy experience has caused them to deepen their understanding of their role and sense of purpose and has provided them with tools to pursue a beliefs-driven, standards-based change process. Completion of the work involved results in Academy membership, a network of school leaders committed to a common path of change, and invitations to follow-up sessions of the Academy, which will be held at least once a year.
