Do you want to be a principal?
We are seeking innovative teachers (counselors, psychologists, and so on) who want to learn to become future leaders to join the Aspiring Principals Academy (APA). The APA, sponsored by the BYU–Public School Partnership, is made up of teachers who meet three times during the year to explore the principalship.
Session 1: This session will be held at individual district offices, so dates differ by district. For those not in the BYU Public School Partnership, the first session will be held online and in the evening.
|Session 2: October, 27, 2020 (4:00-7:00 p.m., Online)|
|Session 3: November 17, 2020 (4:00-7:00 p.m., Online)|
Why Join the Aspiring Principals Academy?
which leadership skills you will need,
what it takes to be a principal, and
whether leadership is the right path for you.
expanded networking opportunities,
increased insight into district cultures, and
information about the BYU School Leadership Program.
We expect you to
attend every session (tentative schedule above),
complete assigned readings before each session, and
actively participate and enjoy the sessions.
No cost, as
you will not be charged to participate,
the cost of your substitutes will be covered, and
a $1,000 scholarship is possible if you apply and are accepted to the BYU School Leadership Program. (This scholarship will be prorated based on attendance at all four APA sessions.)
