School Administrators of Montana are proud to offer innovative professional learning opportunities to district and school leaders across Montana. A combination of the SAM Mentor Program and the SAM 21st Century Leadership Institute (21 CLI), the SAM Leaders Professional Learning Program (LPLP) is unlike any program available today. Entering it's third year, SAM has partnered with the Montana Office of Public Instruction, Montana University System Ed Leadership Programs, the Department of Administration and individual Montana business partners to create this opportunity for Montana's education leaders.
The LPLP provides a unique opportunity for those who register for the program(s) to receive one-on-one coaching/ mentoring and innovative, project-based, blended professional learning opportunities while working with experienced, highly qualified Montana administrators (mentor/coaches called Providers) in each of the 9 MASS region areas of the state.
The launch of the SAM LPLP 2015-16 will be part of the SAM Administrators Institute scheduled for July 27-30, 2015 in Helena.
