New Visions Leadership Program kicks off in January
To build upon the learning outcomes of the Institute, GUK will offer technical assistance to schools in the areas of rigor and relevance and college and career advising using the evidence-based model. The GEAR UP Kentucky Visions Leadership Program, a new component of GUK School Improvement Services, is designed for school leaders who aim to cultivate a strong culture of learning, set ambitious goals, and support faculty to achieve them. The program will engage school and district leaders in professional learning to address a specific issue in their district related to student preparation and school culture. Throughout 2016, participants will use data to further define that issue, work with staff and students to assess needs, and identify and implement interventions that work.
Superintendents may create and lead district teams of up to five school leaders which must include at least one principal. Staff from The Collaborative for Teaching and Learning will contact superintendents and school leaders over the next few weeks with more detailed information and nomination forms. The registration window is January 19 to February 26 with virtual work beginning with participants later this month. The program will include four regional meetings in March hosted by GUK:
- March 8 – Murray
- March 9 – Louisville
- March 10 – Morehead State University
- March 17 – Lexington
