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.
