Principals: take your leadership to the next level with this comprehensive, year-long professional development program. It will build your capacity to develop and facilitate distributed leadership in your school that aligns to the values and TLC purpose within your district.

1.0 Program 
Qualifications - If you have a willingness to work collaboratively with a coach to identify areas of strength and growth, and a desire for feedback regarding your leadership practices, then ASP 1.0 is for you! This program is not designed to satisfy principal mentoring requirements or to serve as a remediation process.

Summer Institute June 26-27 - Jump in with this Institute where you will revisit the purpose of your district’s TLC program, clarify the teacher leader roles in your building, establish school improvement and leadership goals, and plan backward to know what steps you’ll take on day one to advance your school improvement plan. (Attendance is required.)

Three half-day regional workshops for the principal and identified leadership team members - During the 2019-20 school year, engage with your leadership team and others in the program to collaborate and learn together. Build relevant content knowledge in order to practice necessary skills in teaming, leadership, and communication within and outside of your team. Reflect on the progress of your plan, celebrate benchmarks and make decisions around interventions where necessary.

One-to-one coaching - Access 30 hours of individualized support from your coach to assist you in implementing your improvement plan. Your coach will facilitate context-specific and job-embedded leadership support aimed at transforming and deepening your leadership behaviors. Coaching will be grounded in the Leadership Academy Performance Practice Worksheet and your Individual Administrator Professional Development Plan goals that are aligned to your school’s improvement goals. 

2.0 Program 
Qualifications - If you have completed the Administrator Support Program 1.0 and are looking to continue to grow your leadership, then Program 2.0 has what you need!

ASP Training August 7 - This meeting will help determine the direction of this year’s work with your coach by focusing on one or more of these questions: Are you getting the desired results from student learning? Is it clear and agreed upon what quality instruction looks like in your building and district? What is your role in the system?

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.

Registration for 2019-20
Cost to participate in the 1.0 program is $1,500 for SAI members, $3,000 for non-members. The charge for SAI member participants in the 2.0 program is $1,000; for non-members, it’s $2,000.

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.”

In 2018-19, the Department of Education will reimburse 50 percent of the district cost upon successful completion of the ASP 1.0 and 2.0 programs. They anticipate doing this again for successful 2019-20 program completers.

Registration is now open. Space is limited and registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Deadline to apply is March 15, 2019, or until filled. Contact Roark Horn with questions.
