The Delaware Academy for School Leadership (DASL) is a professional development, research and policy center working to improve public education by developing leaders.

DASL believes that outstanding leaders drive educational improvement and ensure student success. We serve leaders throughout their careers and at all levels of the educational system, providing a range of research-based training programs, policy initiatives and consulting. DASL staff collaborates with faculty and clinical staff in UD’s Professional Development Center for Educators and the College of Education and Human Development in order to provide high quality, research–based professional development to educators.

DASL announces the UDEL Principal Preparation Program (UDEL PPP), an 18-month professional development course of study which launches in August 2015.
