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 SY19-20 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.

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.

Site Seminars

Site seminars are carefully structured two-day events that demonstrate implementation of the design principles and core practices of EL Education. Credentialed network schools hosting site seminars implement the EL Education model at a high level and have proven impact in terms of  high levels of student achievement. Leaders and staff exhibit teaching and leadership skills that exemplify the EL Education model. 

Site seminars are focused, purposeful, and intensive. They highlight the school-wide implementation of critical aspects of the EL Education model that the school does particularly well, in addition to demonstrating strong overall implementation of the EL Education approach. 

During the seminar, participants visit classes for long periods of time; meet with administrators, teachers, students, and parents; and examine exemplary student work. They collect observations and make sense of these observations in small and large groups.
