Throughout the month of July, an NASSP delegation comprised of American principals traveled to China to conduct a series of Great Leaders Summits. The summits are a program of the NASSP Chinese Affairs Center (CAC), which was launched earlier this year.
The summits took place in five cities: Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Xi’an, and Beijing. Delegation members used this opportunity to present professional development programs to over 2,000 Chinese school leaders. NASSP President Michael Allison also spent time discussing NASSP’s role in promoting principal development, school improvement, and student voice. In addition, the team worked to form “sister school” relationships with Chinese schools in each city.
The delegation—which included NASSP Digital Principals Bill Ziegler and James Richardson—and its Chinese counterparts will share their experiences at Ignite ’16 in Orlando, FL, this February.
