New! Principal Partners Program: Spring 2020 


The spread of COVID-19 has created unprecedented challenges and uncertainty for public education leaders. Every community is trying to navigate this new normal and do everything possible to support staff, students and the community.

Our current circumstances demand a different kind of leadership, particularly for school building leaders. There is great value in coming together to share ideas, promising strategies and just to support one another. 

To that end, CASE is so pleased to invite all secondary school administrator members to join us for a new weekly Zoom meeting every Tuesday afternoon at 1pm. Each meeting will focus on a unique problem of practice and be led by a facilitator with an emphasis on learning from one another. We encourage you to share your thoughts and pose questions to your colleagues during these meetings; our intent is to provide a helpful network that can serve as a resource for you during these difficult times. 

Please note that these virtual meetings are only open to secondary principals and assistant principals. We are mindful of the many demands on your time so each meeting will last one hour and we'll post on this page the recordings from each meeting so that if you miss one, you can listen at a later time.

As always, we are here to support you. Please contact CASE Director of Professional Learning and Strategic Partners Carrie Yantzer at if you have any questions.
