Springfield High School Assistant Principal Selected To Governor's Leadership Academy
Posted on 03/08/2018

Springfield High School Assistant Principal Larry Staggs has been selected as the first ever enrollee from Robertson County to the Governor’s Academy for School Leadership.

The program is a one-year fellowship program for assistant principals that is intended to increase their leadership capacity.  In partnership with Vanderbilt University, and local school districts, the state of Tennessee has set a goal of cultivating and developing future school leaders in order to improve overall school effectiveness and student performance.

Participants were nominated by their district’s director of schools and selected through an application and interview process conducted by representatives from the Governor’s Office, the Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) and Vanderbilt University.

Each assistant principal is paired with an experienced principal who will mentor them throughout the year-long process.  Staggs will work under the guidance of Dr. Katie Osborne, principal of Greenbrier High School.  During the year, Staggs will also attend monthly group training sessions and a week-long summer institute at Vanderbilt.  He has also begun the schedule of interning three days per month at GHS with Dr. Osborne.  On completion of the academy, Staggs is expected to pursue placement as a school principal in the region or local district.
