2.0 Program features
Qualifications - If you have completed the Administrator Support Program and are looking to continue to grow your leadership, then Program 2.0 has what you need!
Three half-day workshops - Engage once again with your leadership team and others in the program to collaborate and learn together. Revisit the roles, responsibilities, and purpose of each teacher leader position, learn strategies to improve team effectiveness, and revisit your school improvement goals and plans with a lens on the Iowa Professional Development Model.
One-to-one coaching - Access 20 hours of individualized support from your coach to assist you in implementing your school improvement plan. Your coach will continue to facilitate context-specific and job-embedded leadership support aimed at transforming and deepening your leadership behaviors as was begun in the first year of ASP participation.
The appropriate role for an Administrator Support Program coach is to provide a safe, supportive learning experience for the principal. In particular, the coach should not engage in conversations with a principal’s supervisor regarding issues related to the principal’s performance or abilities unless the coach is concerned about illegal, unethical or immoral behavior.
Cost to participate in the 2.0 program is $1,000 for SAI members, $2,000 for non-members.
School districts may use TLC funds to pay for the principal’s registration fee. HF 215, subsection 12d. states that funds may be used for “other costs associated with the framework or comparable system approved by the department of education under section 284.15 with the goals of improving instruction and elevating the quality of teaching and student learning.”
Space is limited and registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Deadline to apply is April 15, 2018, or until filled.
Principals enrolled in the 2.0 program are eligible for 1 licensure renewal credit upon attending the required three half-day workshops and receiving 20 hours of coaching.
