Whitehead named to principal leadership program

From Local Sources

HUNTINGBURG — A Dubois County principal has been selected for the sixth cohort of the Indiana Principal Leadership Institute at Indiana State University’s Bayh College of Education.

Huntingburg Elementary School Principal Chad Whitehead will participate in the two-year experience designed to address the professional needs of Indiana public school principals with an emphasis on student success. The institute will increase a principal’s capacity to address the current needs of his school, such as effective instruction, student performance, community involvement and shaping a strong school culture.

Cohort No. 6 is being guided by 11 trained mentors who are experienced Indiana school leaders. Principals in the cohort will play a key role in guiding smaller, regional-focused cohorts in their areas of the state.

In addition to the targeted work with each cohort, IPLI is committed to serving as a resource for all Indiana principals, their schools and their school communities. This includes sharing research, providing access to leadership assessments and offering tools to develop action research plans. IPLI’s website, indianapli.org, serves as the clearinghouse for this information.
