    Starting out in the school leadership profession is difficult enough. It is even more difficult having to do it alone.  The RIASP Coaching program provides early principals with the support of an experienced principal trained in the role of principal coach. 

    Coaching is available for all School Administrators in Years 1-4. This includes anyone in a Fast Track program. 

    Once registered, you will be matched with a veteran principal trained in the coaching protocol. Coaching clients are expected to:

    • Complete a minimum of 25 hours of one-to-one coaching (in person or virtual).
    • Participate in a community of practice with others in the program.

    Meet the coaches.

    After successful completion of these requirements, you will receive a certificate for professional learning hours. 

    Cost: $1600 paid by principal or school/district. For more information please visit our website and read testimonials from participants. 

    Email Bob Littlefield at rlittlefield@riasp.org or call 401-272-9811 with specific questions.  Ready to get started? Register now!

    Aspiring Rhode Island Principals' Community of Practice

    This network supports an ongoing community of practice for aspiring principals deeply committed to investigating and enacting high impact instructional leadership strategies. 

    Educators interested in growing into a future administrative role will participate in coaching and real-world practice. Participants will apply the leadership skills that matter most, and grapple with the unpredictable challenges leaders encounter every day. They will share challenges and reflect with peers in the program, forging a support network that will last through their careers. 

    Sessions are led by teams of practicing principals using authentic scenarios.

    Session Dates:

    Tuesday October 17      4:30 - 6:00 PM

    Tuesday November 14  4:30 - 6:00 PM

    Tuesday December 12  4:30 - 6:00 PM

    Tuesday April 9             4:30 - 6:00 PM

    A small fee of $60 helps to cover the cost of all seven sessions.  We are able to keep the cost down thanks to our partnerships with the Rhode Island Foundation and the RI Department of Education. The sessions are for any educator already enrolled in a principal prep program, OR those who are just exploring the possibilities.

    Participants will receive certificates that may be used as Professional Learning Units
