Event Description

Participants of AWSA’s New Building Administrators Academy (NBAA) regularly provide strong feedback, where more than 90% attest to the positive impact that the NBAA’s timely, tailored, and relevant cohort learning approach has had upon the launching of their administrative careers in year one.

The BEL Academy is designed to support principals and associate principals through a similar cohort approach three times during the school year for relevant, ongoing learning specifically designed for leaders serving in years 2-5 who want an integrated, cohort approach to leadership development rather than a deep dive into a specific area of the work that is typically provided by one of our existing AWSA Academies. Research shows that the greatest amount of principal turnover occurs during these crucial years. The BEL Academy is focused on not just helping a leader survive this critical career window, but thrive as an effective and balanced learning leader who is developing a learning organization.

Also, for first time, 2019-20 BEL Academy participants will have the option of working with a certified coach on a monthly basis at no additional cost.

Please note: although the BEL Academy is targeted for supporting leaders in years 2-5 of their administrative journey, this academy is open to any experienced administrator who wants to meet the following objectives through BEL’s cohort approach.
