Overall Program Design
The Alabama New Principal Mentoring (ANPM) Program is a two-year program for all school leaders who are serving as school principals for the first time. Each principal will be assigned a trained mentor who will serve as a “guide on the side,” imparting advice, serving as a sounding board, listening, facilitating reflective problem-solving, and coaching the new principal. The mentor will help the new principal create a development plan and a “map” of various learning activities that will help the new principal speed his or her orientation to the job and facilitate professional growth based upon the Alabama Continuum for Instructional Leader Development. The district and state will provide support to the mentors in the form of program guidelines, training, support materials, and support groups. The ANPM program, while designed to be flexible enough to meet the needs of individual principals, schools, and districts, also has some required structure to ensure that the new principals—and ultimately, their schools—receive the maximum benefits from the program.
The electronic version of the Alabama New Principals Mentoring Program is under construction. The tentative launch date is August 2013.
