    Online Curriculum Leadership Academy - SUMMER 2022  Earn 40 Act 45 Hours in an Asynchronous Format


    The Pennsylvania ASCD Curriculum Leadership Academy is designed for administrators who are interested in the development, implementation and evaluation of curriculum, instruction and assessment in the district. This is an Act 45 approved professional development opportunity worth forty (40) Act 45 hours.

    The Pennsylvania ASCD Curriculum Leadership Academy is a program designed to provide in-depth learning and networking opportunities that develop curriculum leadership. Curriculum design, development, implementation, and evaluation have become complex processes in today’s schools. New school leaders assigned curriculum leadership duties are often placed in such roles without all the prerequisite knowledge and skills. The Pennsylvania ASCD Curriculum Leadership Academy is designed to help these educators gain a deeper understanding of how to get started. Strategies and techniques to be successful, resources that are available, and how to continue to improve in a variety of areas of curriculum leadership will be addressed.
