Join us for a one-day immersive event that will teach lessons learned through the Illinois Partnerships Advancing Rigorous Training (IL-PART) grant, what data tell us, and tools you can use.

Principal Preparation, Recruitment, Hiring, Development and Retention: An IL-PART Symposium
May 7, 2018
9 a.m.–4 p.m.
Radisson Hotel Normal, 8 Traders Circle, Normal, IL, 61761 

Within the IL-PART Grant, partners collaborated in a two-fold effort aimed at enhancing the role of the district/university partnerships in creating rigorous and relevant principal training programs aligned to the complexities faced by today’s principals; and working collectively to improve teaching and learning and support high academic standards for students in participating high-need districts. The partners worked to prepare highly-effective school principals and assistant principals that positively impact student learning in high-need districts. They also developed effective partnerships between university partners and high-need districts to build leadership capacity in an effort to improve student outcomes.

Additional details for the event will be emailed out the week before the event.
