Episode Summary

(Rebroadcast) In this episode, we speak with Nick Indeglio and Jon Ross, two principals at Downingtown Area School District in Pennsylvania, otherwise known as the Rock Star Principals.

Episode Notes

(Rebroadcast)

This week at Insights Summit 2019, our guests Nick Indeglio and Jon Ross are two of our keynote speakers. To celebrate, we're taking another listen to this episode of Field Trip from 2018.


Being a principal can be isolating. Here’s how two principals began to use podcasting, blogging and social media to connect with colleagues around the world — and the impact it had on their schools.

Nick Indeglio and Jon Ross are principals at Downingtown Area School District in Pennsylvania. While carpooling, they would often have conversations about their jobs — being instructional leaders, leading a building, and the impact being principals had on their lives and marriages. Those conversations eventually turned into a regular podcast: The Rock Star Principals.

Our conversation with Nick and Jon looks at how principals and other education leaders are using technology to share new ideas, serve their teachers and staff, and implement world-rocking strategies in their schools.
