Assistant Principal


The Assistant Principal Institute offers learning experiences to increase the leadership capacity of the assistant principal and positively impact his/her school’s learning environment and student achievement.


Participants are current assistant principals whose building principal is a graduate of Phase 1 or more of the Master Principal Program.


The assistant principal, as a leadership team member will:

  • Use the organization’s mission, vision, and beliefs to integrate administrative and instructional practices;
  • Lead transformational change efforts at the intersection of administrative and instructional practice;
  • Assist in the development, implementation, and evaluation of effective practices for teaching and learning for adults and students;
  • Model effective communication skills with all stakeholder groups;
  • Assist in the access, analysis, and use of data that results in improved student and adult performance; and
  • Assist in decision-making for the strategic use of resources (time, money, and people) to improve student and adult performance.

Length of Institute

Two residential learning experiences, a one-day drive-in and interactive web conferences.

We have been able to fund this program partially, but it will require additional financial commitment on the part of the school or district. There is a $900 institute fee to help defray costs of materials and lodging.
