Advanced Leadership Program for Aspiring Principals
Now, more than ever, NYC public schools have an urgent need for strong, inspired, and dynamic leadership. The research-based literature related to effective schools and student achievement has long acknowledged the critical role Principals play in shaping a school into a cohesive and collaborative community of learners.
Recognizing the need for a systemic approach to help Administrators who aspire to become Principals, ELI has designed the Advanced Leadership Program for Aspiring Principals (ALPAP) to develop leadership through a variety of year-long activities. The program provides a venue for Administrators who have already met the challenges of their administrative and supervisory roles; have demonstrated a readiness to become Principals; and are primed to explore the decision-making process required of a school Principal. The components of the program include partnering with a Mentor Principal, attending a series of Advanced Leadership Seminars and participating in seminar-related field experiences.
Acceptance to the program is based upon a minimum of two years Satisfactory experience as an NYCDOE Administrator and a recommendation from the applicant’s direct supervisor.
The Executive Leadership Institute (ELI) is now accepting online applications at ALPAP Application for 2019-2020 for the Advanced Leadership Program for Aspiring Principals (ALPAP) for the 2019-2020 school year. Applications are due on or before March 1, 2019.
