2019 Student Leadership Course Academy Flyer »

The Academy is open to any teaching or interested in teaching the TASSP State Credit Student Leadership Class as well as those who want to enhance their skills for working with a council, club, or leadership team.

Student Leadership is a course for students who seek opportunities to expand and deepen their group and individual leadership skills to positively impact their own lives and community. Building on collaborative skills and habits of mind, students will gain knowledge and expertise in leadership skills including goal setting, effective communication, organization, time management, and collaborative strategies. In some schools, the course is customized to meet the needs of formal student organizations such as student council. The course is adaptable across various student needs and student populations. The course prepares students not only for active participation in school but also in their community. Students solve relevant and current school and community issues by working collaboratively and independently on high-level real-world tasks such as project proposals, portfolios, and presentations.
