Program 1

Aspiring Principals Program (APP): a 14-month leadership development program for aspiring school leaders committed to serving in high-need schools. APP has three-phases: the summer intensive -- a six-week boot camp that exposes participants to the challenge of school leadership through a comprehensive simulation grounded in authentic school experiences; a ten-month school residency under the guidance of an experienced mentor principal; and a planning summer that prepares participants to transition effectively into their new leadership roles. New School Intensive (NSI): a leadership development and technical support program for individuals selected to open new, small schools. NSI's pre- and in-service components include targeted leadership development sessions and technical support that helps principals address the unique leadership challenges inherent in building and sustaining a highfunctioning educational environment from scratch. School Leadership Coaching: Designed and delivered by recently retired expert practitioners who stay abreast of and responsive to system reform efforts, our coaching programs for new and experienced principals are flexible, responsive and aimed at helping principals improve student learning outcomes. Coaches offer a range of support through a facilitative approach grounded in clearly defined leadership competencies, including one-to-one coaching, coaching for school teams and groups of principals as well as targeted sessions and peer networking opportunities. Workshops: In collaboration with the Council of Supervisors and Administrators's Executive Leadership Institute, the Leadership Academy offers workshops designed to support NYCDOE school leaders in areas such as instructional leadership, accountability, and data systems. Strategic Consulting: We provide strategic consulting and leadership advisory services. In addition, a number of school districts around the country have adapted our programs and methodologies.
