Launching School Leadership Network


About the Series

AWSP's Launching School Leadership Network brings new and newly assigned school leaders three opportunities to maximize their leadership during the first year.

Attendees will hear from practicing principals and other educational experts in each workshop, which are based on one of three stages during a new leader's first year. 

Proven Effective

Principals who've participated in LSLN love it. In fact, 100% of participants recommend LSLN to new administrators, and we have the data to back it up.
