Creating Mathematically Connected Communities

   Leadership Development for Administrators

Principals have the power to make or break a school initiative. They set the tone, lead the vision, prioritize the focus, and create school cultures that promote a climate of learning and collaboration. MC² provides opportunities for principals to personally undertake the study of mathematics and pedagogy in order to refine their leadership and management skills directly tied to improving mathematics teaching and learning. Professional learning opportunities for administrators include research-based learning designs leading to changes in their knowledge, skills, and dispositions. The results are an increase in principal knowledge and skills to support teachers as they change their practice in the classroom. Learning designs for principals include the following:

  • Leadership Academy – two full days in the summer
  • Leadership Team Sessions – three half-days during the school year
  • Principals Learning Communities – four half-days, designed regionally
