Leaders Institute recruiting for 2016

The Innovative Leaders Institute is a year-long training and mentoring experience for educators led by some of the top STEM and innovative school leaders across the country. To date, over 130 educators from urban, rural, and suburban schools across five states – including Chicago Public Schools – have participated and 100% said they were glad they attended and would recommend the Institute to their colleagues.

Looking to lead STEM in your school? Begin assembling your team of two from the same school including an administrator now. Applications will be available March 7 February 22.

Why do you need a team of two? Because after watching STEM initiatives implemented in dozens schools, we have seen that it’s essential for leaders implementing new programs to have support.
