Across our country, district leaders continue to strive to support principals at scale.  Leading with exemplary practices of principal supervision is even more challenging in this time of unprecedented change.   Successful principal supervision requires new ways of supporting principals in a partnership role, leading by teaching and learning in an atmosphere of mutual accountability. 

AASA partners with the University of Washington Center for Educational Leadership to bring standards-based Principal Supervisor Professional Learning Academy to central office leaders who support principals' instructional leadership growth as their primary responsibility.
