New Administrators Institutes
Separate from the Mentoring Program, these one-day events are available to administrators who are beginning the first year in their position, whether brand new or transitioning to a different role.
The New Administrators Institutes will address topics relevant to each job-alike group, including but not limited to leadership for learning, navigating the first 90 days, critical dates and deadlines, how to establish a learning culture and must-know legal tips. Each session will include presentations by respected Iowa administrators and opportunities to network with colleagues.
Dates will be posted to the SAI Events Calendar once available.
