PASA Summit for Assistant Superintendents & Supervisors

Leading from the Central Office role of the Assistant Superintendent or central office supervisor requires a systems approach by establishing essential conditions of practice and support. Pennsylvania Essential Practices for Schools and their Communities provides a framework of formative feedback for school improvement efforts.

As a central office administrator, it is critical to understand your schools’ implementation status of needed evidence-based practices, including what data sources to collect, in order to lead and foster sustained improved teaching and learning for all students and operate fiscally responsible school programs and practices.

This workshop will guide participants through determining what core conditions are needed to be successful in their district practices to empower leadership, develop a focus on continuous improvement, provide student-centered support systems, and foster quality professional learning systems.  Participants will also learn how to develop a system for regular program evaluations, emphasizing the need to assess improvement by the methods of program and practice implementation.  In addition, two practicing Central Office leaders will present their personal journeys in establishing these practices into their school systems!
