Leadership Academy (with Colorado Department of Education)
Build, improve, and sustain leadership excellence through Accelerate Institute's Leadership Academy
Accelerate Institute is proud to partner with the Colorado Department of Education to support its Turnaround Leadership Development initiative through the CO EASI (Empowering Action for School Improvement) grant.
No single leader can close the achievement gap alone - high-performing schools are the result of an entire team of leaders working in tandem towards a common goal. However, many school leaders and leadership team members never receive formal training on how to lead schoolwide systems, structures, and teams.
That's exactly why the Leadership Academy exists - to support all levels of school leadership (principals, assistant principals, deans, etc.) in developing the leadership and management skills they need right now to boost their school's performance.
What is the Leadership Academy?
Accelerate Institute's Leadership Academy starts with a rigorous 4-day bootcamp in Chicago, IL. After attending the bootcamp, participants will deepen their learning through two sessions with Accelerate Online, an online learning platform. Participants will have a recommended schedule for completing these learning modules (total of 7) throughout the 2019-20 year. Each module will have opportunities to apply the learnings and then participants will receive feedback.
