The 2022-2023 school year will bring a unique opportunity
for school leaders to balance new learnings with proven practices
and strategies. Striking this balance will be crucial in accelerating
student learning and renewing teacher empowerment.
About the Academy
The District Administration Leadership Institute has developed
an academy for School District Principals to be refreshed and
challenged in leadership skills and knowledge by looking through
the lens of Systems, Culture, and Instruction as they continue
to grow as impactful leaders.
To meet ever changing needs in a digital age and continue to
provide equitable opportunities for all students, the Academy offers
