administrative academies

An Administrators’ Academy is a program in which Illinois school district administrators participate to meet legislated requirements for continuous professional development. The academy provides a means of offering opportunities for high-quality professional development. Through the Administrators’ Academy, practicing administrators with differing needs, interests, and schedules may increase their knowledge and skills in instructional leadership.

The Illinois State Board of Education approves the administrator academies that are developed by those state entities who have been granted authority to develop and manage this learning.

NEW! We also introduced Coaching Academies in 2021. These special events provide coaches a place to learn, network, and earn PDHs. Check out our upcoming events list here to see our latest Coaching Academy offerings. 

The following Administrator Academies are currently scheduled through Illinois Digital Educators Alliance:

    • December 16, 2021
    • 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM
    • PDA Office (2705 McDonough, Joliet, IL)

    This course, facilitated by Stan Gorbatkin, is designed to support district leaders in the development, evolution, implementation, and promotion of programs and initiatives which will best support students in the future.

    Through a researched-based and systemic view, participants will identify celebrations and challenges with current district culture and organizational structure and reflect on possible changes.

    Also participants will deepen understanding of alternative and authentic assessment methods and blended/personalized learning models and reflect on possible next steps for implementation.

    In addition, participants will explore options for flexible differentiated professional development for staff and examine the role of messaging and community partnerships with focus on positive use of Social Media.

    Illinois educators can earn up to 8 PDH for this event.
