The Dr. Brian Dassler Leadership Academy is a year-long, job-embedded and research-based program for principal professional development with three anticipated outcomes:
The Academy’s work is grounded in the University of Washington’s Center for Education Leadership’s theory of action: student learning improves as the quality of teaching improves, and the quality of teaching improves as leaders understand what constitutes high quality instruction along with the rile they play in improving teacher practice. This program is limited to principals and principal supervisors on an application basis, with leaders participating in three institutes at a central Florida location and five school site “learning walks” with a cohort to practice instructional leadership skills.
As a valued partner in public education and a direct support organization for the Florida Department of Education, the Florida Education Foundation invests in high achievement for every student to contribute to Florida’s globally competitive workforce. The Florida Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
