The coordinating committee of the National Summit for Principal Supervisors invites school districts, universities and other leaders in education to submit proposals to present at the fourth annual Summit for Principal Supervisors. The 2019 theme is:
Innovating Education through Leadership
Educators, educational leaders, principal supervisors and aspiring principal supervisors are invited to submit a proposal for presentation that addresses how programs, initiatives and/or practices in the areas of professional development, school improvement, legislation/policy, finance, leadership, human resources, and organizational culture are aligned and related to internal consistency, focus, and coherence in how districts define and support the work of principal supervisors. We are especially interested in receiving proposals that provide clear, convincing data that the program/initiative is effective in aligning strategic goals for supporting and evaluating principals with the structure and management of their supervisory and support systems. Presentations that provide practical approaches to guiding school principals through important transitions such as implementing Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Common Core and National Standards for Principal Supervisors are of interest.
Private Sector providers are required to partner with a school district and/or university to be considered. The proposal must be submitted by the school district and/or university and must be practical, demonstrative and focused on the professional development of the audience. In short, presentations must not be sales pitches. Groups not adhering to these guidelines will be automatically excluded from the scoring process and deemed ineligible to present.

It is our intent that the Annual Summit serves K-12 Superintendents, District Leadership Staffs Aspiring Principal Supervisors and Principal Supervisors nationwide by providing a forum for the presentation, consideration, and discussion of the role of the Principal Supervisor. This year, concurrent breakout sessions will be arranged to facilitate the exchange of information around understanding and maximizing the role of the Principal Supervisors.
You may submit more than one proposal for presentation. The title and a description of up to 500 words should summarize and accurately reflect the content of what you are proposing for the session. As you develop your proposal, think about real and concrete results, what your colleagues most want to know, and how your session can be interactive and involve conference attendees in the session.
The format for presentations is one of the concurrent breakout. Each session will run for approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. Presentations must be focused on education. Sales presentations will not be accepted.
The deadline for submitting a proposal is Friday, December 7, 2018. Accepted and declined proposals will be acknowledged via email by Friday, January 11, 2019.
Selected presenters must make presentation slides available for upload to the conference’s website. Slides must be submitted electronically no later than March 31, 2019. Submission details will be provided with notification of acceptance of your presentation.
