Program Description:

PASCD's Online Curriculum Leadership Academy is an online professional development program designed to provide in-depth learning and networking opportunities that develop curriculum leadership. Participants will be awarded 30 Act 45 (PIL) hours after successfully completing the program. 

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 PASCD Online Curriculum Leadership Academy was 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.

Target Audience:

Central Office Administrators, Principals, Assistant Principals, and Educational Leaders interested in curriculum development.
