We have seen a strong demand from districts and private schools for collaboration to identify and train highly effective school leaders. To assist, we have collaborated with school districts and universities around the state of Illinois to identify, prepare, and develop transformational school leaders ready to take on the challenges of today’s high-need and hard-to-staff schools.
Now it is time to expand and to increase the development of effective principals in public and private schools located in rural, suburban, or urban settings that:
- increase principal time spent on instructional improvements
- improve instructional quality by engaging teachers in an on-going change process
- positively impact student learning, particularly with high-need students
