Our wonderful Principal Sambrook has been named by The Learning Partnership as one of Canada’s Outstanding Principals for 2013.
Seven principals from the TDSB were included in the list, including only three elementary principals.
From the announcement by The Learning Partnership:
In the Canada’s Outstanding Principals program, principals are nominated by their peers, school staff and community members in every province and territory. Nominations are reviewed and final winners selected on a representation-by-population basis by a National Selection Committee made up of a distinguished group of Canadian education, community and private sector leaders. Candidates are chosen using the following criteria: characteristics of outstanding principals; evidence of partnerships with parents and community; a personal story illustrating successful change and innovation that resulted in improved student achievement; and letters of support.
Between February 24 and 28, these principals will also participate in an executive leadership training program at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management. There, they will discuss management issues with other leaders from the educational and business sectors. The 2013 Canada’s Outstanding Principals join an assembly of 260 education leaders who have received this honour over the past nine years, becoming members of The Learning Partnership’s National Academy of Canada’s Outstanding Principals. The National Academy offers principals ongoing networking, mentoring and professional development opportunities so that they can continually enhance their leadership skills.
Let’s congratulate Principal Sambrook for this well-earned honour!
