National Instructional Leader Academy
Turning possibilities into probabilities for all students.
The National Instructional Leader Academy was developed by AASA and AVID as a timely opportunity for district instructional leaders to be refreshed and challenged in leadership skills and knowledge by looking through the lens of instruction, culture, and systems as they continue to grow as impactful leaders. To meet ever-changing needs in a digital age, and continue to provide equitable opportunities for all students, school district instructional leaders need an opportunity to grow in their own professional learning and to network with other leaders from across the country for collective impact.
Upon Successful Completion of the Academy participants will receive an AASA/AVID certification of completion and professional achievement.
The National Instructional Leader Academy consists of three in-person institutes and each institute is three days long.
