Dear Principal, 

RIASP is very pleased to continue to offer new and early career Rhode Island principals, and assistant principals in year 1-4, the opportunity to receive 30 virtual coaching hours during the 2020-2021 School Year.

Coaching is provided by veteran principals, who have successfully completed a national model of Coaching training facilitated by
Delaware Academy of School Leadership and/ or  the Connecticut Center for School Change.   

Why Coaching?

What the research says:
“Coaching is not about filling the voids and deficits assumed to be part and parcel of a new job.  It is about developing a professional practice of action and reflection, of probing current systems and exploring possibilities.” (S. Stein, NYCLA, July 2015)

What one coachee says:My coach is a great thought partner, she has offered multiple resources that I can leverage at my school, and she asks really thought-provoking questions that allow me to plan accordingly.”

What the data say: During this past school year 100% of RI principals who received coaching agreed that coaching was a very positive learning experience for them and their schools, and would definitely recommend coaching to other novice principals.

Once you complete your registration, you will be matched with a principal coach. The following are the requirements to participate in the program.

  • Complete 30 one- to -one  virtual coaching hours.

  • Attend a virtual orientation (90 minutes  TBD).

  • Attend virtual seminars (60 minute sessions during the school year).

  • $550 to be paid in full by November 1st (paid by principal or district).

After successful completion of these requirements, you will receive a certificate for 36 professional learning hours. The program is limited to 15 new and early career principals.
