Relay Graduate School of Education

A partnership between the Relay Graduate School of Education, 10 Kansas City-area schools and the Kauffman Foundation is providing professional development for 12 leaders selected to serve in the first Kansas City Leadership Cohort. The cohort will participate in Relay Graduate School of Education’s National Principal Academy Fellowship and receive ongoing practice and support in Kansas City. Participating schools include: Alta Vista High School, Academie Lafayette, Attucks Elementary School, Central Middle School, Ewing Marion Kauffman School, Genesis School, KIPP Kansas City, Longfellow Elementary School, and Red Bridge Elementary School.

The program, which is job-embedded and practice-based, provides current and future school leaders with the instructional and cultural leadership skills necessary to transform schools.
