The Ontario Principals' Council is committed to supporting school leaders throughout the education system. Education Leadership Canada ® , our professional development unit, seeks input from a multitude of sources to identify, design, develop and deliver the learning and support needs of our Members and colleagues.
Support to Members can take many formats and can be customized to the learning needs of a district school board, a cohort of principals in a local region or to individuals. Full or part day workshops, consultations with practising principals/vice-principals with an expertise in a particular field, or small group planning sessions are just a few of the delivery modes being offered through ELC. The OPC recognizes the value of job-embedded learning, sharing promising practices and the distributed leadership model of principals sharing with principals.
As a not-for-profit organization, neither OPC provincial nor the local OPC district can rebate/give money directly to an OPC member. If OPC were to do so it would jeopardize OPC Members' collective ability to report OPC membership fees as tax deductible.
Your board may make professional development funds available to VP's and P's, however the rules regarding how those funds may be used must be followed.
