Looking Back on the Title II Day of Action–You Can Still Help!

Educators are always seeking new ways to improve themselves to help better their students. Title II is one of the unique federal programs that supports educators in this endeavor. It provides federal funds to recruit, retain, and train high-quality teachers, principals, and school leaders. Unfortunately, these incredibly important funds were cut by $294 million in the FY 2017 budget and proposed for elimination in President Trump’s FY 2018 budget. (more…)

Upcoming Webinar – Cultivating the Principals Urban Schools Need

Join Glenn Pethel, executive director of leadership development for Gwinnett County (GA) Public Schools, for a webinar sponsored by The Wallace Foundation that will examine how six urban school districts are working to cultivate first-rate principals for their schools.

Until recently, many educators and policy makers overlooked the unique role districts can play to help principals shoulder their central responsibility: improving teaching and learning. However, with new evidence emerging about the importance of school leadership and how it can best be developed, a number of school districts are rethinking their approach to the principal pipeline.

Pethel will be joined by colleagues Michelle Farmer, director of leadership development, and Erin Hahn, coordinator of leadership development, to discuss how school districts funded through The Wallace Foundation’s Principal Pipeline Initiative are working to build a large corps of well-qualified candidates and provide support to school leaders on the job.

This webinar also will review the recent Wallace Foundation report, Districts Matter, Cultivating the Principals Urban Schools Need, which demonstrates how urban school districts can play a major role in ensuring they have principals who can boost teaching and learning in troubled schools.

Webinar compliments of The Wallace Foundation and NASSP.
