Promising Principals Academy to Build School Leadership

Academy Brings Together Emerging Leaders for Intensive Professional Development

BALTIMORE – A new generation of Maryland school leaders is converging on Hunt Valley next week for Maryland’s Promising Principals Academy.

The Academy, a unique effort by the Maryland State Department of Education to prepare a new cadre of principals, is building on the success it has had since its launch in 2014. Research has repeatedly shown that effective principals are key to successful schools.

Forty-one assistant principals included in the Promising Principals Academy’s earlier classes have already been promoted to principal.

Forty-five emerging leaders from 23 of Maryland’s 24 school systems will take part in this year’s class. Participants were nominated by their local superintendent based on their leadership potential, interest, and current position.

WHO: Educators from Maryland’s public school systems.
