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 invited secondary school administrator members to join us for a weekly Zoom meeting. Each focused on a unique problem of practice and was led by a facilitator with an emphasis on learning from one another. We encourage you to take advantage of the content of these meetings and let them serve as a resource for you during these difficult times. 

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.
