The Aspiring Principal Workshop is designed to provide an overview of the principalship to those individuals who are considering a career in Pre K-12 school administration. Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. at each location with the workshop beginning at 8:30. The day’s activities will conclude at 3:00 p.m.

Being mindful of the high number of retirements among the ranks of school principals in the state during the next five to ten years, the AAEA/AAESP Board of Directors offers this opportunity to encourage quality educators to enter the principalship. The content of the day will be based on information from the National Association of Elementary School Principals “Previewing the 21st Century Principalship” program. One special component of the program will be a panel discussion featuring national distinguished principals from elementary, middle, high school and other key state leaders. Professional development credit will be given.

Registration fee for the workshop is $50.00 and includes all workshop materials and refreshments.  Onsite registration will be $60.00.
