Day One on Site: Community of Practice for Principals

Photo: Participants of the Community of Practice for Principals

Principals from across the region met for the second time today at Edmonton Public Schools, Florence Hallock Elementary Junior High School, to continue to engage in personal professional learning and view exemplary leadership in action, to dialogue about successes and challenges, to network with many school configurations, and to reflect on their practice.

The goals of this project are to:

  • Observe how the seven competencies outlined in Alberta Education’s Principal Quality Practice Guideline, 2009 are “lived” in today’s schools, within the context of ongoing change and limited resources. 
  • Engage in examining research (including the host principal’s own “action research”) related to the seven leadership dimensions; connect research to your own practice; and reflect on implications for your work as leader in your school.
