    Anderson School District Five has developed a two-year leadership program for present and potential administrative leaders.  The Assistant Principals' Academy (APA) is for current assistant principals, individuals certified in school administration, or individuals in the process of completing an administrative certification program.  Twelve to fifteen District Five certified staff members will be chosen.  APA members must be committed to attending all program events and in taking an active role in the sessions.
    Requirements:  To be accepted into the Assistant Principals' Academy, you must be a full-time district employee, have 4 years of teaching experience, and be currently certified in school administration or in the process of completing an administrative certification program.  Also, APA cohort groups are formed only when there are a sufficient number of applicants. 

    Level I
    The program focus for
    the Level I Academy
    (year one) is to provide
    participants with an
    inside view of the key
    operational components of
    Anderson School District Five. 

    Level II
    Discussion topics are from
    What Great Principals Do
    as well as simulations
    based on real-life
    Participants are given credit for seat hours toward their recertification.  Individuals are not promised positions within the district office or promotions within their schools.
    An end-of-the-year recognition for Level II participants will take place at the April or May Board meeting. Board meetings are held every third Tuesday of the month.
