ALAS Accepting Applications for its Leadership Academies

The Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents (ALAS) is accepting applications now through April 15, 2024 for its Superintendents Leadership Academy (SLA) and National Principal Leadership Academy (NPLA).

The academies provide coaching, mentoring, and support to improve and expand opportunities for emerging school system leaders. They include a mix of in-person and virtual sessions that help participants acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to serve in principal or superintendent roles in school systems, with an emphasis on school systems that serve primarily Latino and other historically marginalized students.

Participants in the Academies must be members of ALAS. The association will provide participants with a 25% discount off of the ALAS membership fee.

“Latino children make up more than a quarter of the students in our nation’s schools and it is imperative that we have strong leaders at both the school and district level who understand how to support the needs of Latino and other historically-marginalized youth,” said ALAS Executive Director Dr. Maria Armstrong. “Our academies, which are led by seasoned professionals who have years of experience in the field, provide invaluable opportunities for those seeking targeted, relevant, high-quality leadership development.”
