Regional Leadership Cohorts
Leadership Development Catalog
Throughout 25 years of our work with schools, we have seen time and time again: when schools invest in developing shared leadership and focus on leading for impact, they significantly increase their overall capacity for improvement.
Shared leadership provides an opportunity for aspiring principals to learn and practice skills in the context of authentic leadership, creating a pipeline of leaders ready to step into the principal role when needed.
We’ve designed a set of new offerings that will launch during SY18–19 to both develop future school principals and to support leadership across a range of roles in your schools: team leaders, coaches, assistant principals, and principals.
Before registering for professional development, please review our policies and logistics.
Regional Leadership Cohorts
An opportunity to strengthen and support the capacity of leaders to raise student achievement. Cohort members learn from each other’s experiences, share best practices, and troubleshoot obstacles on the path to comprehensive implementation of EL Education’s Core Practices. The cohorts are designed for network school leaders, including principals, directors, and instructional guides.
Job-Embedded Learning Communities
Participants engage in intensive learning with a small community of peers in multiple sessions over the course of a year. Participants are return to their schools and apply their learning in their jobs in between each session.
All programs include an explicit focus on leading for equity, including understanding how our identity influences our leadership practice and strategies to ensure all students achieve at high levels.
Leadership Development Institutes
These institutes develop leadership skills for educators across a variety of roles in schools. Participants deepen their understanding of how to leverage the EL Education leadership Core Practices, collaborate with colleagues to examine exemplary practice, and apply what they learn to their own contexts.
Note: EL Education expects all new principals and all principals new to EL to enroll in both the Leadership Induction Institute and the Leadership Induction Follow-up Package. In FY19 a limited number of new leaders will be eligible to contract for additional leadership coaching based on interest and need.
Leadership Site Seminars
New leaders attend a Leadership Site Seminar that explicitly ties leadership practice to student outcomes. Based at an exemplary EL Education school, the Leadership Site Seminar provides another opportunity for new EL leaders to connect with other new and experienced leaders, gain concrete skills to integrate into their practice, and build a shared vision of effective leadership at an EL Education school.
School Design Fellowship
Our school model relies on creative and capable leaders with a bold vision of what is possible. The EL Education School Design Fellowship supports entrepreneurial educators to design, launch, and lead new EL Education schools. For 2018-19, we are seeking visionary change-makers to participate in this immersive residency and then launch new schools in Washington D.C., or Denver.
