EducationPlus is hosting a special event on Tuesday, September 23rd from 2-6 pm for principals and assistant principals with Dr. Susan Szachowicz, senior fellow with the International Center for Leadership in Education. At the this kickoff, attendees will learn more about Principles for Principals, the new year-long professional learning program offered by EducationPlus. Developed with the International Center for Leadership in Education, the academy will help good principals become great, and great principals become better.
On September 23rd, Dr. Szachowicz will share how she is dedicated to ensuring all students achieve college and career readiness and firmly believes the ideology: “high expectations, high standards-no excuses.” She has served students at Brockton High School, a large comprehensive urban high school for her entire career. Under her leadership, the school went from 56 percent of students passing the state’s standardized test in ELA to 94 percent and from 24 percent passing in math to above 85 percent.
