The Teaching Trust Leadership Teams Program prepares principals and their teams to realize their vision of an aspirational school culture and create a robust plan for campus improvement.
Leadership Teams is a selective, one-year program for school leadership teams that want to drive and sustain significant improvement in school culture and instruction in order to increase student performance. Leadership teams work with a Teaching Trust Leadership Development Coach to strengthen their effectiveness, establish common goals, and create systems critical to dramatically increase student achievement. At each session, teams plan and implement action-learning projects related to campus priorities. Leadership teams receive competency-based coaching in between sessions to support implementation efforts. At the end of Year 1, Leadership Teams have the opportunity to opt into a second year of the program for ongoing coaching, feedback, and support.
