If your school district will be hiring new principals, is in the process of grooming you for the principalship, or if you aspire to become a campus administrator, this professional development is a must. The 2019 program will be the 21st annual TASSP New Principal Academy held in the serene retreat setting of Trinity University in San Antonio. The Academy offers any grade-level new principal (0-3 years) and aspiring principals a very practical hands-on training in skills for the principalship: Leadership and Team-building Skills; Best Hiring Practices and Human Resource Information; Crisis Management Training; Campus and Activity Fund Training; Documentation Skills; School Law as it relates to the campus principal; How to Avoid Career Derailing Mistakes; and so much more. This academy has been acclaimed as being very valuable and timely for any grade-level new and aspiring principal; here are just a few comments from the 2017 class:

"I am so happy that I came. I have learned a ton of valuable information and met many new colleagues. This academy has clarified questions that I had about scheduling my time, documentation, and activity accounts. The presenters were great ..."
