School administrators need skillful support from leaders of teaching and learning; leaders who believe in coaching as a vehicle for developing exemplary leadership. The Professional Growth Coaching for Leaders Academy, presented by WASDA and AWSA, will equip superintendents, central office leaders and others who directly support principals with the tools and practices that enhance principal performance in leading schools of equity and excellence for student success.  The overarching goal of the Academy is to assist with the development of instructional leadership skills that deliver breakthrough results for all students.

Knowledge Objectives:

  1. Identify strategies to determine best practices in teaching and learning.
  2. Understand how to use evidence of principal practice to identify next steps of leader improvement that foster a positive educational environment and support the diverse cultural and learning needs of students.
  3. Learn a process for determining local academic priorities and problems of practice.
  4. Understand how to identify a shared problem of practice and recognize strategies to impact change.

Practice Objectives:

  1. Analyze coaching conversations and scenarios for effectiveness and intended impact.
  2. Promote reflection on impact by engaging leaders in coaching simulations that use targeted questioning and conversation strategies.
  3. Engage in a relationship with a principal for the purpose of practicing and analyzing coaching skill.
  4. Facilitate coaching conversations that ensure equity and excellence in schools.
