Virtual - From Mathematic Policy Research: Recognizing that school leaders play a critical role in school performance, states and districts are rethinking how they prepare principals. But this retooling of preparation programs raises a number of important questions: What skills do new principals need? How can we identify aspiring principals with the potential to develop those competencies? And how can we use these insights to improve the training of leaders at all levels of the system, from teacher leaders to principal supervisors?

Join a webinar on Thursday, May 16, at 12 p.m. ET (register here), to hear lessons learned for preparing principals and school leaders from New Leaders, a national nonprofit that prepares education leaders for schools serving high concentrations of students in poverty and students of color. The webinar will cover findings from a recent study that examined the effectiveness of principals prepared by New Leaders and identified competencies of aspiring school leaders that predicted better outcomes.
