Advancing Your Career
TASA, through a partnership with N2 Learning, offers leadership development opportunities for assistant principals, principals, and central office administrators. We also offer in-depth learning opportunities for those who aspire to be superintendents, as well as comprehensive training, resources, and mentoring for first- and second-year superintendents.
TASA Partnership with N2 Learning Develops Transformational Leaders
TASA partners with N2 Learning on several professional development offerings that further our mission of developing school leaders who create and sustain student-centered schools and develop future-ready students. These partnerships are one way we are working to provide learning opportunities that align with the various career pathways of TASA members and other school leaders.
Assistant Principal Leadership Academy
The Assistant Principal Leadership Academy not only prepares assistant principals to take on the role of principal, but also helps them to grow as transformational leaders.
The Principals’ Institute and PI 2.0
PI allows principals to understand why transformation of public education is necessary, and develop the knowledge and skills required to lead and build the capacity to sustain transformation over time. PI 2.0 allows principals to extend the work initiated in the Principals’ Institute.
Executive Leadership Institute
Starting in 2020-21, TASA is partnering with N2 Learning to offer the Executive Leadership Institute, which is designed to build the capacity of district executive leaders for system-wide improvements in teaching and learning.
