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.
