The Principal Induction Academy is for new Principals in Collier County Public Schools (CCPS). After successfully completing the Assistant Principal BENCH Academy, the Assistant Principal Induction Academy, the Principal BENCH Academy, and acceptance into the Principal Pool, candidates are eligible to become Principals. Upon appointment as a Principal, the candidate automatically enters the Principal Induction Academy. The academy is facilitated by principals and District leaders as participants learn from real-world case studies as applied to the Collier Leadership Evaluation Model. A critical component of this academy is structured collaboration with an experienced Principal mentor. This is a multi-year academy that becomes more individualized as the participant develops.
