This intense, cohort experience is designed to simultaneously provide targeted leadership development for one or more members of your staff and support your school’s progress on a specific work plan goal. Over multiple months and learning sessions, we will build capacity in four areas of leadership: leading a strategic improvement cycle; engaging a team in shared leadership; cultivating trust among staff members; and understanding how our identity influences our leadership. We seek participants who are committed to boldly confronting and addressing inequities in their schools. While disparities in student learning vary from school to school, in this learning experience, we will focus specifically on racial inequities as a way of modeling how to address any form of inequity a school may face.

In addition to in-person learning, a significant aspect of this offering is its job-embedded nature. After each in-person session, participants will complete follow-up assignments and collect evidence of their work, such as agenda, notes, and video from a meeting they lead; evidence from ongoing data monitoring; and survey feedback from colleagues about their leadership. Participants will give and receive feedback from members of their cohort who will share their own evidence of learning. This experience will involve demanding and rewarding work. Join this cohort of colleagues who share your passion and drive for ensuring all students excel in EL Education’s  Dimensions of Student Achievement.

Note regarding eligibility to participate: In order to participate in this yearlong cohort, participants must be authorized to lead one aspect of improvement within their school’s work plan. To fully engage in the learning and follow-up assignments, participants will need a clear, designated work plan goal as well as access to a wide array of relevant school data.

Price: Pilot price is $1,800 due to grant subsidy. Schools pay $900 for the SY17-18 contract. The remaining $900 goes on the SY18-19 contract. Due to a grant that EL Education has received, the price for SY18-19 has been significantly subsidized. In subsequent years, we anticipate the price will be $2700. By registering for the pilot year, participants agree to sharing data from their school for research purposes.

Registration is currently open to EL Education network schools.
