Future Assistant Principals

  • City Schools is working to pre-qualify a robust group of future assistant principals to lead in our schools and to support principals. Sustained recruitment and development of these future administrators support our focus on leadership and its contributions to the success of every one of our students.

    All candidates (both internal and external) who wish to be considered for a future assistant principal opportunity must first be deemed eligible by the Human Capital Office through a series of comprehensive, rigorous activities to ensure they embody the disposition, character, and experience necessary to support whole students academically in extraordinary ways. Interested educators can initiate consideration for pre-qualification by completing an application online. Candidates have a minimum of three years of leadership or supervisory experience and hold a valid Maryland State Department of Education certificate with an Administrator I endorsement.

    Candidates who meet these minimum criteria may be invited to other selection activities, including one of the two assistant principal "assessment centers" conducted annually. The dates for the 2018-19 school year are Wednesday, November 14, and Friday, March, 29. Only candidates who are pre-qualified on this timeline through these processes will be eligible to be hired for assistant principal roles as they become available.

    An information session to share expectations, the application process, and next steps is scheduled for Thursday, October 25, from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. in Room 120 at 200 E. North Avenue. Please attend or share this information with anyone you would encourage to consider future assistant principal opportunities.
