New Guidelines for Educational Leaders

The Principal Preparation Project Advisory Team was created by SED to make recommendations to a new set of standards for school leaders. SAANYS was a very active member of this team, and the team recommended on Tuesday that the Board of Regents adopt the standards. The team also recommended making initial principal certification competency-based, exploring opportunities to create full-time school-based internships for aspiring principals, providing increased coaching and mentoring, and providing incentives for P-20 partnerships.
