Principals’ Instructional Learning Network

In partnership with RIDE and the Connecticut Center for School Change, we are excited to offer this personalized professional learning opportunity to you at no cost, and  provide an entirely new type of support for principals. The Connecticut Center was selected to partner with RIASP to create this initiative because they are a national model for effective leader learning.  RIASP recognizes that being a school leader is rewarding; however, it also comes with many challenges. The job can be lonely, and at times seem impossible to manage. The network acknowledges that principals need to support each other to thrive and make progress to improve student learning in their schools. Too often we put our own professional learning aside; however, principals’ professional development needs have never been greater than they are today.

What does this network offer? The Principals’ Instructional Learning Network is a small, ongoing community of practice for school principals/assistant principals deeply committed to: 

  • Identifying strengths and needs related to your school’s instructional core

  • Examining research on high impact leadership practices, and teaching and learning

  • Collaborating with principals in the network to address your school’s problem of practice
  • Applying new learning to practice and sharing the results with the network, and contributing to the learning of other school principals across the state.

What makes this network stand apart from others

  • Open to all principals and assistant principals.

  • This network is open to only principals and assistant principals. The network recognizes that principals need to rely on and support each other. 
  • Ongoing community of practice that is tailored to each principal and their school needs around instruction.
