Informational Meetings for AAA

Dear Teachers, Counselors & Psychologists with a Preliminary Administrative Credential and Current Assistant Principals:

The Aspiring Administrator Academy (AAA) wants you!  We are looking for a few good men and women who want to make a difference as leaders and mentors.  We are asking you to join our growing platoon of innovators in the Sweetwater Union High School District.

If you are a current assistant principal, we would love to recruit you as a year-long mentor.  In your role as a mentor, you will help aspiring administrators learn more about the assistant principal position.

If you are a current teacher with a preliminary administrative credential, not only will you gain valuable field experience, but you will collaborate with fellow cohort members to learn about the assistant principal position from a variety of perspectives.


To learn more, please preview the SUHSD Aspiring Administrator Academy website.  In addition, please plan to attend one of our informational meetings:

  • March 6 – 3:30 PM in the PDC
  • March 7 – 4:00 PM in the PDC
  • March 14 – 7:00 AM in the PDC

Give us a year… we will give you an experience that will prepare you to thrive as an administrator.

Purpose:  The purpose of the Aspiring Administrator Academy is to recruit, train, support and retain high quality site-level leaders who will increase student achievement, close the achievement gap, and support innovative efforts to improve learning within the SUHSD.  The Academy will offer training, mentoring, and a year-long apprenticeship to program participants for the purpose of advancing equity in the SUHSD.  

Taco Tuesday & Twitter Too!

Please join us at the PDC from 4:00-6:00 PM for our second Taco Tuesday & Twitter too event!  Beginner and advanced Twitter users are welcome. We will be introducing the value of Twitter as a professional tool for educators, discussing an #suhsd Twitter chat, and exploring ways to expand our Professional Learning Network (PLN). Please let us know you are attending and invite your friends and colleagues.  Did we mention that there will be tacos?!
