Coaching Program for Principals
The longer you serve as a school administrator, the more situations to which you are exposed. Experience certainly helps in navigating many of these situations, but sometimes it’s helpful to have another seasoned school administrator to provide input and recommendations. IASP’s new coaching program offers just that.
Through weekly communication and four in-person meetings, an IASP coach—who is either a retired or long-sitting school administrator—will:
- Help you plan intentionally so you can focus on the important tasks that need to be completed
- Review your administrative processes and offer suggestions for improvement
- Assist you in finding balance in both your professional and personal life
- Advise on managing relationships and handling communications via social media, newsletters, email, written correspondence or face-to-face
- Offer support, advice and, more importantly, a listening ear
Principal Service Corps
The Principals Service Corps (PSC) is retired school administrators dedicated to supporting principals and to promoting leadership development.
School Climate Audits
School corporations can request a school or multiple school audit. PSC members conduct these audits. A written report is sent to the contract agent, principal or superintendent.
