Principals’ Institute Overview
In 2010, the Principals’ Institute (PI) was established with an emphasis on operationalizing the work of the superintendents’ Visioning Institute and its product, Creating a New Vision for Public Education in Texas (Visioning Document). PI managed and facilitated by N2 Learning. It is a year-long professional development series that works with principals to understand why transformation of public education is necessary and develop the knowledge and skills required to lead and build the capacity to sustain transformation over time. The future of Texas public schools depends on the quality of its leaders. Attending PI allows principals to experience one of the most noteworthy professional growth opportunities in their career and collaborate with the innovative PI network that now stretches nationwide.
