RIASP is pleased to offer you the opportunity to receive 20 virtual coaching hours during the 2020-2021 School Year. Coaching is for aspiring principals enrolled in an Ed Prep Program, as well as New & Early Career Administrators in years 1-4. 

Coaching is provided by veteran principals, who have successfully completed a national model of Coaching training facilitated by
Connecticut Center for School Change.   Meet the coaches.

Why Coaching?“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 20 one- to -one coaching hours (in person and/or virtual).

  • Participate in a community of practice with others in the program.

After successful completion of these requirements, you will receive a certificate for 30 professional learning hours.

Cost: $550 paid by principal or school/district.
