The Professional Renewal Network:
Leadership Support for Practicing School Leaders

Presented by Antioch University New England and the Professional Renewal Network

The PRN is designed to support school leadership through monthly cohort meetings.  Utilizing PRN leadership principles, we will work together to bring to the fore various causes of stress in school administration as well as effective coping techniques.  Implications for school districts, enhanced leadership preparation practices, and further research are essential components of professional cohort meetings. Individualized, onsite meetings are available on an individual, or multi-school basis for an additional fee.

Our leadership cohorts are based upon these PRN Essential Principles:

  • Acting with Moral Courage

  • Moving the Vision

  • Curricula expertise

  • Healthy Relationships

  • Community Engagement

Our Core Values of Social Justice, Equity, and Personalized Engagement will guide our work throughout monthly cohort meetings held at AUNE.

The roles of school leaders have become exponentially more complex than just a decade ago. Current research informs us that these following stressors significantly increase job stress:

  • Unpleasant relationships and people conflicts

  • Time constraints and related issues

  • Balance between professional and personal lives

  • Crises in the school

  • Challenging policy demands and overwhelming mandates

  • Budgetary constraints and related issues

  • Fear of failure

  • Negative publicity and dealing with media

PRN Program Features Include:

  • Personalized Professional Renewal Plan

  • Onsite visitations by PRN staff for whole school and individual mentoring

  • Group Readings

  • Design of personalized Action Research projects eligible for AUNE Graduate credits

If three or more school leaders enroll within the same district or geographical area, we will work with you to set up monthly cohorts in your area at no additional cost

The program consists of 6 monthly meetings that are 5 hrs. in duration.  We will foster a retreat like atmosphere for each cohort meeting, while at the same time expecting a high level of focus and discourse using highly effective PRN readings, reflection and personalized professional supports.
