Accelerate Program Looking for New School Leaders
March 24, 2011 06:56 pm
The Accelerate Program prepares outstanding educators to lead start-up charter schools that will succeed from the beginning – to help close the achievement gap. Accelerate started in Chicago and has since expanded to New York, Los Angeles and the San-Francisco –Oakland area.
From now until early April, the Accelerate New School Leadership Program is seeking applicants and nominees to enroll in its two-year professional development program designed to create an elite corps of principals in new charter schools. The opportunity includes a paid summer leadership institute at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, residency in a high-performing charter school and eventually, the chance to lead your own new school.
