The principal of Dawson County High School has been selected to take part in a statewide program that promotes leadership in school administrators.


Principal Jute Wilson was nominated among 29 other principals in the state of Georgia, who will attend the eight day-long program in September.


According to Allene Magill, executive director, the Professional Association of Georgia Educators is intended to “deepen principals’ knowledge, capability and confidence to lead change on behalf of students across the state.”


Wilson said the program is “a first class operation. I am looking forward to meeting with principals around the state to discuss methods to keep moving our school forward.”


The sessions are provided at no cost to the principal or school district.


The network will be led by two national experts from the Schlechty Center, a nonprofit organization “committed to partnering with school leaders across the country to transform their classrooms, schools and school districts to places focused on compliance.”


According to its Web site, PAGE is the state’s largest organization for professional educators, including more than 80,000 teachers, administrators and support personnel “providing professional learning to enhance competence and confidence, build leadership and increase student achievement.”
