Peer Group Gatherings

First-Time Heads of School

Three-Part Series

  • Fall: Wednesday, October 3, 2018
  • Winter: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 -- meets at AISNE's Heads' Retreat
  • Spring: Thursday, April 11, 2019

As head you are the chief narrator of the vision for your school. You need a place to sort through various (and often competing) priorities. Especially in your first year, it's not always clear with whom or how you may best work through the most thorny of questions or unforeseen challenges. You need a comfortable and supportive place to sort through your thoughts and shape your ideas. That place is this three part forum!

This series is led and facilitated by Bruce Shaw and AISNE's Executive Director, Claire Leheny.
