The job of Principal and Assistant Principal is one of the most important hires in any school district. They are the face and energy of the building. In order for new administrators to be successful, it is vital for them to have key background information, access to current educational legislation and to develop their professional network. MASSP continues to provide training and networking opportunities for these new administrators with the New Principal's Network – formerly known as Bootcamp – led by 31-year veteran administrator, Tammy Jackson. Do you know of a newly hired administrator or one who's 2-3 years into the position? Give them a leg up and let them know that the New Principal's Network is currently accepting enrollments for the 2017-18 school year.

The Network is a safe environment for new administrators to ask questions and develop their own professional network with each other. The combination of in-person sessions, virtual meetings, guest speakers, and school visits allow your new administrators to gain important background information on a variety of topics, including but not limited to: vision & purpose, communication, leading staff, building climate & culture, student scheduling, school improvement and year-long planning. In addition to creating a strong base of skills, the Network will allow your administrators to be on the cutting edge of many of the changes happening in our state, such as funding, technology, assessments, and administrator productivity are addressed by experts in the field.

We all know that the building administrator is the key "change agent" to bring about the improvement needed in today's challenging educational environment. Giving your new administrators this opportunity is one of the best investments a school district can make to ensure continued growth. Choosing the New Principal's Network for your new or recent hires is a great first step in guaranteeing their success!
