Starting this month, Oregon education reform organization The Chalkboard Project is embarking on a new initiative that will bring leadership training to 71 school administrators responsible for 41 percent of Oregon’s K-12 students.
CEL, in its role as the primary training provider for the 18-month Leading for Learning initiative, will run seminars and conduct school-based sessions to help school administrators improve teaching and learning. One main focus will be on building the skills needed by principal supervisors to develop instructional leadership expertise in the principals with whom they work. “There’s a new set of skills that must be mastered when one shifts from leading a school to leading leaders of schools,” Frank Caropelo, vice president of education policy at the Chalkboard Project, said in a statement.
At the Center for Educational Leadership we partner with courageous leaders in classrooms, schools and the systems that support them to eliminate educational inequities by creating cultures of rigorous teaching, learning and leading. Our vision is transformed schools empowering all students regardless of background to create limitless futures for themselves, their families, their communities, and the world.
