Video Workshops


We get it – getting out of your building is hard. Principals in different districts have vastly different professional learning budgets, support from the district for attending professional learning out of the district or school, and very different geographic access to quality training. That's where our video workshops come in. We bring the content to you and your team, complete with templates, surveys, and guiding questions so you and your team can kickstart an initative. 


Political Action

Are you a PAC-man or PAC-woman? AWSP’s PAC supports pro-education legislative candidates and helps ensure our legislators understand the importance of public education, the principals’ role in it, and create the best policies and procedures for all kids. An investment in the PAC is an investment in your students and your career.

Advocacy And
Action Center

Your one-stop shop for tracking bills, issues, and action items. Look up your legislators, send them an email, tweet to them, or write a letter to the editor -- the action center makes it all easy. Criterion 7 of the AWSP Leadership Framework is about connecting with the community and advocacy is a part of that. Speak up for your students and let your legislators know what works for your students and what doesn't.

Career Center
