Principal Leadership

The Principal Leadership Network is designed to provide a regional forum for CESA #11 district principals as they work collaboratively in addressing roles and responsibilities critical to student achievement within their districts. Educator Effectiveness, new school report cards, and continued changes with curriculum and assessment will be our primary focus areas.
