The New Administrator Academy (NAA) is a year-long program designed to support new campus leaders through their first year or two of decision-making on a campus. The Academy kicks off with an Orientation meeting in early September where each participant is paired up with a Pivotal Leadership Coach.
This will be followed by an early fall site visit by the coach to gain a deeper understanding of the new administrator and to build a foundation for their work through the year. Each administrator will have 4 individualized coaching calls with their designated Pivotal Leadership Coach throughout the year. The coaching calls will be scheduled and arranged by the new campus administrator and will typically be spread out through the school year. The design of the program is to give each new campus administrator the support he/she needs to develop into a dynamic campus instructional leader.
Over the course of the year between Sept.-April there will be 8 group collaborative discussion opportunities to “check-in” via Zoom virtual meetings and collaborate around the challenges and solutions these new administrators are facing and finding. The work will culminate with a final spring campus site visit.
We encourage you to join us for the journey to increase confidence and skill as an instructional leader! Being a new leader is a challenging position! You don’t have to do it alone! Join the Region 13 New Administrator’s Academy for the 2019-2020 school year.
