Seats are limited and invitations will be sent in the order of completed applications and receipt of appropriate current principal/supervisor reference.

If an aspiring candidate meets the minimum qualifications, he/she may only apply and participate once per semester and may only apply for one leadership role per semester (principal or assistant principal).

The Virtual Assessment Skills Center (ASC) Process for Aspiring Principals and Aspiring Assistant Principals

Due to the COVID-19 virus, Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) is taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our staff, students, and visitors. During this time, the Division of Human Resources and the Division of Organizational Effectiveness will continue to engage with aspiring school-based administrators virtually.

The virtual Assessment Skills Center will include and require the following: 1) submission of a recommendation from the current supervisor based on the Maryland Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSELs); 2) submission of a PSEL Action & Impact form; and 3) a structured interview where the candidate demonstrates fluency on Maryland’s PSELs.

Please Note: When submitting the application, please include the current principal’s/supervisor’s name and email address in the reference section of the application. The Office of Staffing will send the reference survey to the current principal/supervisor once the applicant has fully submitted the application.

The Maryland Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL) Rubric defines the practice of an effective school-based leader.
