See? The NYC Department of Education really does listen to the public when they start saying the "Leadership Academy" principals were no good. Now, we have Summer Principals Academy, the Principal training at Relay Graduate School, etc.....
please contact Mark Rush, Executive Director of the Principal Pipeline Strategy, at MRush2@schools.nyc.gov
Lots of new wonderful programs to churn out warm and fuzzy principal people.

The pipeline structure has systemic supports and effective leadership development programs at each stage to identify and cultivate:
- Strong teachers to meet the citywide instructional expectations and move into more formal teacher leadership development programs;
- Effective teacher leaders and assistant principals to move into principal pipeline programs and then into principal positions;
- Quality support for novice principals; and
- Opportunities for experienced principals to mentor aspiring leaders.
New York City was one of six urban school districts in the United States selected by the Wallace Foundation to participate in its $75 million, five-year Principal Pipeline Initiative. This grant has informed our efforts to reassess our existing leadership pipeline and to strengthen it with an emphasis on teacher leadership and school leadership roles. The other selected school districts include: Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, Denver Public Schools, Gwinnett County Public Schools, Hillsborough County Public Schools, and Prince George's County Public Schools.
The DOE is committed to sustaining proven, effective strategies. We look forward to continuing our long-time partnership with The Wallace Foundation and others who support this work as we build and strengthen our leadership development and career opportunities.
Leadership and management often require distinct and complementary skill sets, and are both critical to the leadership development process. The resources below have been identified as helpful guides to support current and aspiring leaders.
