Sid Bailey

Director of Leadership Development

As the Director of Leadership Development for the Arizona Charter Schools Association, Sid is astutely aware that all effective schools have an effective leader at the helm. Through the Association’s partner organization, the Center for Student Achievement, Sid provides leadership training for Principals regardless of their level of experience. Leadership development is delivered in many forms including year-long Leadership Institutes, stand-alone trainings, and custom support tailored to the needs of individual leaders. Sid has experience at all levels, starting his career as a teacher, and then working for 14 years at two Valley schools, both recognized nationally for their academic success. Following his principal positions, Sid held district and state level leadership positions in athletics, student conduct transportation, assistant principal development, and leadership training director at the Arizona Department of Education. He is a member of the Northern Arizona University Athletic Hall of Fame (Track and Field) and in 2017 was inducted into the Arizona Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association Hall of Fame.
