Aspiring Principals Program

The Aspiring Principals Program (APP) is a cohort-based professional development program for District employees (i.e. teacher leaders, coordinators, and assistant principals) who aspire to assume the role of principal. The program is designed to provide participants with a series of targeted sessions aligned to the LAUSD School Leadership Framework in the areas of instructional and operational leadership. APP participants build their leadership capacity through extensive practice using multiple sources of data to analyze school context and to develop an entry-plan for assuming the role of principal.
