The Schoolmen's Club of Philadelphia, through postal mail, sent an invitation to 1st Year Principals for an event to be held at the CASA Office on Thursday, January 29.  Unfortunately, a scheduling conflict has occurred and the event is being postponed by one week.  The new date is Thursday, February 5.  Please refer to the letter "New_Principal_Invite.doc" on the Shared Documents page.  We are asking that you RSVP by Monday, February 2nd to Judith Gerben Lundy, Assistant Principal - Fels High School (jude3600@aol.com or 215-879-0415).  A representative from the Pennsylvania Department of Education will share information on PIL NISL requirements.

RE: Coaching Institute

Given the interest in "educational coaching" among our area's administrators, our PIL Region has  added another  3-day coaching institute this year. It is intended for school leaders and scheduled for March 5, 6 (at PaTTan, King of Prussia) and May 21 (at Bucks County Intermediate Unit). This three day institute is worth 30 Act 45 PIL hours. The emphasis is on creating a collaborative approach to improvement in the "instructional domain" through the application of coaching skills and techniques. It  gives administrators yet another tool for working with teachers. Given the popularity of this institute, you are encouraged to sign up ASAP. We need 15 people to run it. If you are interested, please contact Jennifer Lally at the Chester County Intermediate Unit. Like all our PIL Courses, there are online activities, participants receive books (based on the latest research) to add to their own professional library and face to face training that allows for sharing among other local administrators.

Sign up now (enrollment window is open until January 31)  by contacting Jennifer at JenniferLa@cciu.org or call 484 2375335
