Principal and Leadership Learning Opportunities

An educational leader is responsible for the collective success of their district and/or schools, including the learning, growth, and achievement of both students and staff. Grant Wood AEA has several opportunities available to support school district leaders during the upcoming academic year.

Additional Professional Learning For LEA Principals

Upcoming professional learning opportunities are available for the 2021-22 school year. Principals are invited to join a cohort with other PreK-grade 12 administrators and build capacity as an instructional leader to develop and successfully implement a MTSS framework to support all students. Evaluator approval and recertifcation credits are available.
