Principal's Induction Program
The Principal's Induction Program will have three cohorts for principals and assistant principals with less than five years of experience. This is a two-year program addressing the three 'Core' Leadership Standards during 14 days of training. The first year participants will attend eight sessions of training (Course 1) and the second year participants will attend six sessions (Course 4).
The curriculum was developed by the National Institute for School
Leadership (NISL) and is designed to increase administrative capacity
using leadership standards research that leads to higher student
NISL fosters leadership development through:
- Hands-on experiential learning (case studies, simulations, group discussions)
- High-level questioning
- Classroom presentations
- On-line learning
The curriculum for the Principal's Induction Program is presented by trainers certified by the National Institute for School Leadership (NISL), a professional development division of the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE).
The curriculum uses case studies, action projects, face-to-face instruction, professional readings, and computer-assisted materials to focus the participants on instructional leadership with a standards-based format.
