    Coaching is for aspiring principals enrolled in an Ed Prep Program, as well as New & Early Career Administrators in years 1-4. See flyer for more details. 

    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 25-30 hours of one- to -one coaching (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 professional learning hours.

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

    For more information please visit our website and read testimonials from participants. 

    You can also email  nletoile@riasp.org or rlittlefield@riasp.org with specific questions.

The next three sessions will have focus on coaching and will be facilitated by Isobel Stevenson from the CT Center for School Change.  

    The Zoom link will be shared with participants a few days before the first session.You will receive PLUs for participation. There is a small fee for non members. This fee pays for the expenses to run the sessions. We are able to keep the cost down thanks to our partnership with the Rhode Island Foundation and the RI Department of Education. 

    The sessions are for any educator in a principal prep program, or is considering it down the road.

    This network supports an ongoing community of practice for aspiring principals deeply committed to investigating and enacting high impact instructional leadership strategies.

    Educators interested in growing into a future administrative role will participate in coaching and real-world practice. Participants will apply the leadership skills that matter most, as they lead a team of teachers in a real school and grapple with the unpredictable challenges leaders encounter every day. They will share challenges and reflect with peers in the program, forging a support network that will last through their careers. 

    When you register  you are registering for all sessions.
