What We Do

Principals face many challenges in leading for the 21st century. Transformations in school systems and communities in the U.S. and around the world have greatly expanded the leadership role of principals. MEMSPA and NAESP advocate for the support principals need to be successful 21st century leaders—to achieve the highest results for children, families, and communities.


Leverage Leadership

The learning opportunity we've been hoping would come along is finally here.

 As principals, we must spend our energy and resources carrying out activities that will give us the most “leverage”- the greatest result for effort expended.

Based on Leverage Leadership, this learning series will assist principals in:
Structuring our work around the seven core areas of school leadership that drive consistent growth,
Organizing our time to prioritize feedback sessions with teachers,
Understanding and providing an opportunity to practice delivering the elements of effective feedback, and
Building confidence and competence in maximizing the effectiveness of teacher teams.  

This opportunity promises facilitated, ongoing professional learning, focused on developing
the skills that create the most significant improvements  in student learning, shared with
our colleagues in a format that supports our own development, sustainability and renewal.

This 5-part learning series will provide principals with specific skills for working with teachers in ways that impact student achievement: fostering a relentless commitment to offer individualized, frequent feedback to teachers about their instructional practice, and building the capacity to offer skillful feedback and direction to teacher teams. Video clips and role playing will be used to demonstrate and practice effective principal/teacher coaching sessions.
