Assistant Principal Leadership Academy

TASA partners with N2 Learning to offer the Assistant Principal Leadership Academy (APL), which not only prepares assistant principals to take on the role of principal, but also helps them to grow as transformational leaders.

2021-22 Cohorts

For 2021-22, APL will have a virtual cohort as well as regional cohorts that will meet in-person. The regional cohorts allow assistant principals to learn alongside peers from neighboring districts and allow districts to minimize travel expenses for attendees. Cost will be $800 per person for the virtual cohort and $1,000 per person (excluding travel expenses) for the regional cohorts. The academy includes six, half-day sessions throughout the school year.
