The U.S. Department of Education is hosting a national principals' workshop Oct. 19-20, 2004, to tackle the real-world issues facing principals today as they strive to become instructional leaders and close the achievement gap. The forum is free of charge and is intended to help principals in schools struggling to improve student performance by sharing with them concrete strategies for improving their instructional leadership ability.
Ray Simon, assistant secretary for elementary and secondary education, and Jackie Jackson, director of Title I at the U.S. Department of Education, will be hosting the workshop. In addition to panels and presentations aimed at helping principals focus on the essential tasks of instructional leadership, the workshop will provide school leaders with information on No Child Left Behind programs and other resources to support school improvement.
