Another week that goes by in October means colder temperatures and even more options to celebrate and participate in National Principals Month (NPM)! The last full week of NPM continues to offer school leaders some excellent opportunities to examine the role they play and how to continue their growth to better support students.
October 24, 3:30–4:00 p.m. (ET):Supporting Inclusive School Principals for the Success of Each Child: Policy and Practice
Inclusive principal leadership ensures that each and every child across all disabilities, languages, and backgrounds has access to the necessary educational resources and rigor at the right moment in their education. Earlier this year, the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), in partnership with the National Collaborative on Inclusive Principal Leadership—in which NASSP participates—released Supporting Inclusive Schools for the Success of Each Child: A Guide for States on Principal Leadership, a website with strategies and resources for promoting inclusive principal leadership both in policy and practice. This webinar will:
- Provide an overview of the newly released website
- Include a deeper dive into relevant strategies and resources for school leaders on inclusive principal leadership
- Offer opportunities for feedback into how the National Collaborative for Inclusive Principal Leadership can improve this resource
You can register for the webinar here.
