Elevate Your Leadership


AWSP is Coming to Your ESD in 2023-24!

Topical, In-Person Workshops Each Month

AWSP is thrilled to introduce "Elevate Your Leadership," a new (free!) initiative we're launching for 2023-24. We're organizing concise learning sessions across every ESD in the state. These sessions will be held at various locations within each ESD, and in some instances, multiple meeting sites will be available. Our goal is to make in-person attendance as easy as possible for each and every AWSP member. There is value in meeting together in-person, and this series aims to harness the power of in-person connection.

The school leadership journey can be an isolating one, but it doesn't have to be. Elevate Your Leadership will help principals and assistant principals come together to engage in discussions, offer support, learn collaboratively, and work together to solve common issues.

Please RSVP

This series is free for AWSP members!
Space is limited. Please register using the buttons below to reserve your spot and to be eligible for clock hours.


All principals, assistant principals, and other school and district leaders
