Leaders today operate in a fast-paced, complex, and demanding environment. They are responsible for leading their schools while effectively managing all operations. Administrators must navigate day-to-day tasks, motivate teachers and staff, drive results, and adapt to ever-changing demands while showcasing their competitive edge.

The BPAA Leadership Academy is designed to equip administrators with the necessary tools and support to become high-performing leaders. Through comprehensive training and coaching, our academy will empower administrators to excel in their roles, effectively manage their schools, and foster positive and impactful leadership. Additionally, we offer guidance and support for career development, ensuring that leaders receive the necessary assistance to navigate their career paths in the desired direction.

Our goal is to build and sustain a strong and positive leadership community within BPAA and the SBBC (School Board of Broward County). By investing in the development of our leaders, we strive to create a supportive network and cultivate leaders who can drive success and make a lasting impact within their schools and the broader education community.

Over the years, our association has experienced tremendous growth and now proudly boasts a membership of over 575 dedicated professionals.

BPAA has emerged as one of the leading school-based administrator associations in the state of Florida. We have established ourselves as a strong and influential voice, representing the interests, concerns, and aspirations of our members. Our commitment to excellence and our unwavering dedication to the profession has propelled us to the forefront of educational leadership in the region.

We aim to unify the voices of school-based administrators to influence Broward County schools and legislative activities that impact the school environment.

Together, we can achieve greatness and make a lasting difference in the lives of our students and the educational system as a whole.

Join us at BPAA and be part of a vibrant community of school-based administrators who are passionate about shaping the future of education in Broward County. 

Make a meaningful impact on the future of education in Broward County.
