This Principal Leadership
magazine article examines ways in which principals can help assistant principals become stronger school leaders. Principals interviewed for the piece, which was written by Wallace Foundation writer Sarosh Syed, point to the importance of delegating leadership activities, using assistant principals’ strengths to address their weaknesses and building support for assistant principals in their new roles. Such efforts take time, but they can nurture the next generation of school leaders while also meeting important school needs, according to the piece. Wallace is learning about the relationship between principals and assistant principals through its Principal Pipeline Initiative, a six‑year, $75 million effort in six school districts to develop insights into how districts can create large numbers of effective school leaders.
