How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

We have trained more than 1,600 school leaders; which includes 700 teacher leaders developed through our Emerging Leaders program; over 850 new principals and assistant principals trained and endorsed through APP; and 70 sitting principals who completed the LPI pilot. Through our full continuum of programs, we have impacted over 14,000 teachers either directly through ELP or through the work of our New Leader principals and assistant principals, and over 300,000 students – 90% of whom are students of color and 85% of whom are from low-income households. Students in schools led by New Leader Principals consistently achieve at higher levels than their peers, have higher graduation rates and are making progress in closing the achievement gap. By studying New Leader schools and many other high-gaining schools, New Leaders has also developed an extensive knowledge base about highly effective school leadership and regularly publishes research and policy recommendations to impact schools and students beyond those being served by the leaders we train.

Program 1

Aspiring Principals Program

Our signature program trains tomorrow’s principals to turn around underperforming schools and the lives of the students who attend them. The people who join our program share a deep belief that all students can achieve at high levels – that demography is not destiny for children if the adults can get it right.

Program 2

Emerging Leaders Program

The Emerging Leaders Program strengthens the leadership skills of talented teachers, coaches and assistant principals in partner districts and charter management organizations, putting participants on the pathway to the principalship while building leadership capacity across a system. We teach participants powerful mindsets and skill sets to start driving achievement gains in their schools right away. If candidates live in one of our program cities, the Emerging Leaders Program is the primary pathway into the Aspiring Principals Program.

Program 3

Leadership Practice Improvement (LPI) Program

The Leadership Practice Improvement (LPI) Program asks principals and Instructional Leadership Teams (ILT) to learn and develop practice together in their schools. The program creates an environment that encourages accountability for outcomes and uses the school building as the primary learning and skill building area. This design embeds lessons into the day-to-day life of the school. Through a highly responsive, web-based program design, participants are encouraged to look for impact quickly, motivating participants to put the learning into practice.
