School leaders face a unique set of challenges and pressures. They are expected to implement major changes, create standards-based schools, and effect positive academic outcomes of students. However instructional leadership is in scarce supply in schools, and no school can achieve the profound instructional shifts required to spur student achievement without school leaders who truly know how to lead. NISL’s EDP Applied Plus and Teaching for Effective Learning series (TEL) build off the research-proven framework and results of NISL’s Executive Development Program (EDP).
EDP Applied Plus (EDP A+)
The EDP Applied Plus (EDP A+) transfers the expertise participants gain from the EDP into sustained deliberate practices, thus allowing participants to expertly apply specific skills in their own unique contexts. Participants are provided with implementation support to build a stronger understanding of systemic redesign and apply their EDP learnings to their school to create a high-performing system. The EDP A+ dramatically improves student achievement by building upon the conceptual framework and well-documented results of the EDP. Learn More.
