States’ Role in Developing Effective Principals

Great principals don’t grow on trees; they require high-quality development and ongoing support to thrive. Research from the Learning Policy Institute for The Wallace Foundation shows high-quality pre-service principal preparation programs share common elements. California State Board President and researcher Linda Darling-Hammond joined NASBE to present research on principal development and high-quality principal preparation programs and the ways in which state leaders can leverage their policy authority to help ensure prospective principals get the authentic, pre-service experience they need to help them meet the demands of the job.

Webinar attendees will also heard insights from current elementary school principal, Delia Arancibia, also a graduate of San Diego State University’s Educational Leadership program, as well as Bonnie Fusarelli, director of NC State’s Leadership Academies.
