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.

New 2 Principalship

New for 2024-25 … a collaborative coaching series through which small groups of new principals, accompanied by experienced coaches, have the opportunity to meet online monthly to address common issues faced by new principals.

The Principals’ Institute

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. 

Executive Leadership Institute

TASA partners 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.
