GAEL’s Aspiring Principal Support Program

The responsibilities of public school leaders are very complex – building manager, human resource administrator, change agent, student disciplinarian, cheerleader, instructional leader, school improvement specialist, and in some cases, surrogate parent. Fulfilling these roles in a positive and successful manner is challenging for many experienced building level leaders. Inexperienced leaders need help ‘staying focused on the big picture’ and need to be provided opportunities for collaborative and reflective learning.
