District offers professional learning opportunities for principals, teachers and staff
Opportunities such as new employee orientation, professional learning days and the Aspiring Administrators Academy are now available to staff members of Alvin Independent School District.
The Aspiring Administrators Academy, or A+ Academy, was designed for individuals in the district aspiring to become principals. The 10-month program engages participants through various aspects related to the job of principal including interactive activities, workshops and presentations. Each program is designed to enhance participants' leadership skills while preparing them to be successful principals.
The program focuses on 10 workshops, each centered on one or more aspects of educational leadership and culture, curriculum and instruction, technology, communication, diversity, ethical leadership, accountability and assessment, fiscal responsibility, student engagement and application of leadership responsibilities.
"The primary focus is to provide a platform for visionary leaders to grow in the areas of instructional, operational and school leadership," said Lisa Butler, director of leadership and professional development, in a press release. "I am confident that the program will fully prepare and support our educators who are looking to move into leadership roles."
"Our expectation is that the individuals who complete the A+ Academy will be well-prepared for the rigors of an administrative appointment and fully equipped to lead one of our campuses if and when an opportunity arises," said Dr. Fred Brent, superintendent of Alvin ISD, in the release.
The first academy began in February and will conclude in December. District employees interested in applying for the next academy may call 281-245-2046 for more information.
