INFORMATIONAL


TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Jo Lynne DeMary

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

New Building Administrators Conference

 

The purpose of this memo is to announce the New Building Administrators Conference sponsored by the Virginia Association of Secondary School Principals (VASSP) and the Virginia Department of Education. The conference has been planned to meet the needs of professionals who are new to building administration, as well as experienced administrators.

 

Reflecting the growing number of first-time appointments to administrator positions (principals, assistant principals, other middle management/supervisor positions), the focus of the program is primarily to help professionals who are new to the job, as well as provide a meaningful refresher to anyone who wishes to gear up for a new school year. It will provide valuable information for all administrators, both new and experienced.

 

The conference is scheduled for October 13-14, 2003, at the Sheraton West in Richmond, Virginia. Please contact VASSP at (804) 288-2777 or visit its website at http://www.vassp.org/conference_schedule.htm for registration and program information.
