The NCSA has been providing on-going assistance, resources and support to first year principals (K-12) in Nebraska for more than thirty  years through the Networking With New Principals (NWNP) Program. The objectives of this program are to:

  1. Expand knowledge of leadership skills and instructional leadership practices;
  2. Promote access to critical information in order to successfully deal with challenging opportunities and responsibilities;
  3. Create opportunities to discuss educational issues;
  4. Provide on-going support and encouragement;
  5. Provide honest and constructive feedback;
  6. Facilitate the understanding of how to use data to inform decisions; and 
  7. Assist in building professional networks. 

The objectives of this program are met through various activities that include encouragement to attend NCSA Professional Development events, virtual meetings, individual consultations with NWNP Team Leaders, regular email communications, and more.   There are opportunities to visit with NWNP Leadership Team Leaders at Principal Affiliate meetings and NCSA staff attempt to provide many opportunities for new principals to build their professional capacity by attending NCSA  or principal affiliate events. We encourage new principals to participate in professional development and to expand their professional network.  Experience suggests that those new principals that actively participate in the NWNP program have been most successful as first year administrators.

The Networking With New Principals Program is led by a dedicated group of school principals that serve as the “NWNP Leadership Team”. This program is led by Dr. Keith Rohwer and Dr. Michael Sieh, long-standing supporters of NCSA and well respected school leaders.  The NWNP Leadership Team and contact information is provided below.  Please feel free to contact these administrators and allow them to assist you in your professional development.  These folks are dedicated administrators that are successful and they can help you to develop your administrative skills. Help us to help you!
