The Rhode Island Association of School Principals (RIASP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting school principals as the leaders of today's schools, teachers, and students. As the state's leading professional association for school principals, RIASP serves its 500+ membership by educating, advocating and collaborating on behalf of the broad range of issues facing Rhode Island principals. In 2005, the Rhode Island Instructional Leadership Academy (RIILA), was created to serve as the professional development arm of the Rhode Island Association of School Principals. The Academy's mission is to develop and support Rhode Island school leaders in building strong school learning communities that foster high achievement for all students. The Academy's vision is to provide collaborative professional development experiences for Rhode Island school leaders to enhance student achievement and close achievement gaps within and between schools. Through Schools in Action (SIA), a genuine learning experience, principals throughout the state open their doors to showcase best practices that develop and support intellectually rigorous and coherent systems of curriculum, instruction, and assessment to promote each student's academic success and social and emotional well-being (RI Leadership Standards, 2018).
