    The Louisiana Association of Principals (LAP) offered a new principals workshop last year in partnership with the LDOE and it was so well received we have decided that we will offer it again this year on December 4th in Lafayette (download flyer for details).  This is a half day workshop and provides a wonderful opportunity for new principals to network and hear from Nationally Recognized Speaker -- Jimmy Casas.  Please feel free to share this information with any new principals (0-3 years of experience as a principal) and encourage them to attend this professional development opportunity!  To register click the following link
