NCCAT Hosts Henderson County Beginning Principals

For the fourth straight year Henderson County Public Schools held professional development for beginning principals at NCCAT.

CULLOWHEE—Henderson County Public School system beginning principals and system leaders continued a professional development program they have hosted at the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching.

The group meet at NCCAT on Oct. 25 and 26. Henderson County Public Schools is the 27th largest school district in the state, and the second largest in Western North Carolina. The system has 13 elementary schools, four middle schools, four high schools, an education center and early college high school. Henderson County Superintendent Bo Caldwell spoke to the group during their time at NCCAT, a recognized national leader in professional development programming for teachers.

"For the past four years, we have partnered with NCCAT to provide targeted professional development to our beginning principals,” said Henderson County Assistant Superintendent Dr. Jan King. “During the two day session, novice principals spend time with their assigned mentor, problem-solve various scenarios, and participate in specially-designed leadership development activities. We are grateful for the many ways that NCCAT supports the work of educators."
