Great schools have talented leaders who ensure that all kids receive a quality education. The Kansas City Leadership Cohort was created in 2016 to support the next generation of leaders and increase collaboration across the city. Over the course of 2017-2018, the second cohort of educators selected for this program will build their experience, knowledge, and skills to elevate learning for children. Selected educators will learn best practices, try new approaches, work alongside leaders from across the country, and apply new skills in their own schools.
After a rigorous selection process, 11 local school leaders from seven different charter schools and districts were selected for the Kansas City Leadership Cohort.
The Kauffman Foundation facilitates the Kansas City Leadership Cohort in coordination with Relay Graduate School of Education to help leaders elevate their skills so that students reach their maximum potential.
Selected school leaders participate in a yearlong instructional leadership program through the National Principal Academy Fellowship and receives ongoing professional development in Kansas City.
