WKU’s Department of Educational Administration, Leadership, and Research is a key partner with the Green River Regional Educational Cooperative‘s new, $5 million, grant-funded initiative to provide high-quality professional development to practicing and aspiring school leaders.
Called Leading 2 Learn (L2L), the three-year grant will provide a variety of professional learning opportunities for leaders in the Allen, Barren, Grayson, and Todd County Schools. School principals will receive training in instructional rounds, data teams, visible learning, and other high-leverage school improvement strategies.
The grant will also provide a generous tuition subsidy and enhanced mentoring supports for three cohorts teachers from these four districts to participate in WKU’s principal certification program. Each cohort will include up to 20 principal candidates who will also have access to many of the same rich professional development workshops as their own practicing administrators.
Many of these aspiring leaders will be eligible for Level I principal certification by December 2015. Recruitment for additional L2L aspiring principal cohorts will begin in February 2015. Contact WKU principal program coordinator Dr. Gary Houchens, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
