Webinar, Wednesday, November 13, Cultivating the Principals Urban Schools Need – 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM EST

Join Glenn Pethel, executive director of leadership development for Gwinnett County (GA) Public Schools, for a free webinar sponsored by The Wallace Foundation and the National Association of Secondary School Principals that will examine how six urban school districts are working to cultivate first-rate principals for their schools.

Until recently, many educators and policymakers overlooked the unique role districts can play to help principals shoulder their central responsibility: improving teaching and learning. However, with new evidence emerging about the importance of school leadership and how it can best be developed, a number of school districts are rethinking their approach to the principal pipeline.

In this webinar, Pethel will discuss how school districts funded through The Wallace Foundation’s Principal Pipeline Initiative are working to build a large corps of well-qualified candidates and provide support to school leaders on the job. This webinar will also review the recent Wallace Foundation report, Districts Matter, Cultivating the Principals Urban Schools Need, which demonstrates how urban school districts can play a major role in ensuring they have principals who can boost teaching and learning in troubled schools.
