Assistant Principal Workshop

Assistant Principal Workshop


How do you manage the unique challenges of leading in a school as an assistant principal, dean, or assistant director? 

If you are new or a veteran assistant, you play such an integral part in the success of your school.  OASSP Executive Director, William D. Parker, and author of Messaging Matters: How School Leaders Can Inspire Teachers, Motivate Students, and Reach Communites will bring together administrators across the state to present the 8-Hats for School Leaders Framework, adressing issues AP’s face each year, including:

1. Coaching: Learning how to support your principal in courageous decision-making centered on the core values of your school and district.
2. Counseling: Learning how to be an active listener and understanding keys to conflict resolution and difficult conversations.
3. Management: Learning to maximize your time by identifying key responsibilities areas for yourself and your fellow team members/teachers/staff.
4. Accountability: Learning how to embrace crucial conversations and non-negotiable expectations for yourself and others in instructional leadership.
5. Cheerleader: Learning to power and importance of recognizing, celebrating, and showcasing successes among students, teachers, and the school community.
6. Servant-Leadership: Learning the importance of modeling what is expected, rolling up your sleeves, and going first in doing what matters.
7. Individual: Learning to avoid burnout by committing to personal growth and investing in areas of life outside of being an assistant principal.
8. Team-player: Learning to ask for help, delegate, depend on others and admit you are not a superman or superwoman while building school culture.
