Principal training

One week ago, former Chicago Public Schools CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett resigned in the wake of a Federal investigation looking into her involvement with SUPES Academy. The investigation followed the Board of Education awarding SUPES a $20.5 million no-bid contract to provide training for school principals. What exactly constitutes "principal training," and how do principals work day-to-day to put various initiatives into practice in their schools? What works and what doesn't in terms of what makes a principal, well, successful? Clarice Berry, President of Chicago Principals and Administrators Association and a Principal for over 20 years, and Tyson Kane, founding Principal at Chicago Bulls College Prep and an Instructor at Accelerate Institute’s principal fellowship program at Kellogg School of management, join us to discuss best practices.
