The Principal’s Leadership Series is CEL’s premier professional learning package and is appropriate for leaders at any stage of their career.  However, it is an outstanding choice for all new principals and assistant principals who need extensive support during that critical first year of service. 

This year-long, five-event series is directly aligned with Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL) and Kentucky’s Principal Performance Standards.


Each session provides 6 hours of EILA credit (total of 30) and provides both national and state level presenters addressing issues and initiatives important to today’s school leaders.
