Region 9 Principal Shared Drive
Principal Share and Exchange
In the fall and spring of each school year, Region 9 hosts a regional principal meeting, along with state principal associations to allow campus and district leaders an opportunity to collaborate and learn together. We are still in the process of determining how we will offer the principal association meetings in 2022-2023.
We will offer our 3 principal leadership conferences again in 2022-2023. The tentative dates for those are Session 1 – Wednesday, October 5th; session 2 some time in January; Session 3 – Wednesday, April 5th.
Leaders in the Loop
We offer Zoom meetings on the 3rd Tuesday of every month called Leaders in the Loop. These meetings start at 1:30 and generally last 30 minutes to an hour. They are purely an opportunity for leaders to connect with each other. There is not set agenda. We will have some talking points, but the main purpose is for you to ask questions of each other and find support from people that are walking in your shoes.
