SCSD officials said SALA’s vision is to build the capacity of future principals to lead their schools to increased achievement levels for all students, as well as to invest in the growth of the leaders of tomorrow.
Over the course of the year, participants were given the topics of instructional vision, difficult decisions based on data, consultancy protocol, recognizing great teaching and growing teachers, redefining school culture and climate, and distributed leadership.
The sessions were held once a month, on Saturdays, and master-facilitated by Dr. Shawn Joseph.
The following SCSD staff members are 2015-2016 SALA graduates: Sharon Archer, Sophia Burden, Renee Burgess, Emily Buss, Deanna Daniel, Joseph Dhara, Antwaun Dixon, Chaz-Lit Doyle, Sarah Gentile, Francine Grannell, Jennifer Homeyer, Dr. Tracy Jackson, Lakisha Jones, Greg Lawson, Christina Louis, Shirley Mackins, Laura Mitchell, Kathryne Moulton, Irastina Reid, Richard Richardson, Dennis Robillard, Amanda Shepherd, Bohdanna Snihur, Raymond Stazzone, Joseph Sterbank and Katelynn Tymczyszyn.
