Governor's Academy for School Leadership (GASL)

The Governor’s Academy for School Leadership (GASL) is a partnership between Tennessee’s Governor's Office, the Tennessee Department of Education, and Vanderbilt University's Peabody College to build capacity for school leadership across Tennessee. Each year, 25 assistant principals from across the state are selected for participation in a yearlong fellowship designed to support their efforts to become a highly effective principal in Tennessee schools. The fellows participate in classes taught by some of the nation’s leading experts in school leadership at Vanderbilt University one weekend each month and for a week during the summer. Fellows also work closely with a sitting principal who serves as a mentor, and participate in a practice-based internship over the course of their fellowship. Upon completion of the program each Fellow is expected to pursue placement as a principal in Tennessee schools.
