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.
The Delaware Academy for School Leadership (DASL) merged with the Professional Development Center for Educators (PDC) in August 2016. Dr. Jackie Wilson serves as the interim director of PDCE/DASL which is a professional development and policy center in the College of Education and Human Development. The staff includes professional development and content specialists in math, literacy, science, and social studies as well as experts in school leadership and responsive classrooms. The staff of PDCE/DASL work in collaboration with school districts and charter schools to develop strategies for school improvement. This includes customized professional development and coaching for teachers, administrators, and support staff. PDCE/DASL also collaborates with the Delaware Department of Education to provide mandatory training to prepare administrators and teacher leaders to administer the Delaware Performance Appraisal System. The center also provides services outside of Delaware such as New York, Hawaii, Kentucky, Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. PDCE/DASL staff serve on a variety of state and national policy committees. For more information about the Professional Development Center for Educators and the Delaware Academy for School Leadership please contact Dr. Jackie Wilson at 302-500-7030 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
