Delaware Academy for School Leadership


“The most important in-school factor promoting student learning is the quality of instruction. Principals establish the conditions that spur and facilitate strong teaching, and superintendents set up the conditions that allow principals to do so. That is why organizations such as DASL that provide professional learning and coaching to strengthen school leadership is so important. Our students are far more likely to succeed when they have highly effective teachers supported by highly effective principals who are supported by highly effective district and charter leaders.”

Delaware Secretary of Education, Dr. Susan Bunting
