DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION SELECTS THE NYC LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION SELECTS THE NYC LEADERSHIP ACADEMY TO PROVIDE PRINCIPAL TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT SERVICES

Chosen from Among Multiple Bidders in Competitive Procurement Process

Schools Chancellor Joel I. Klein today announced the selection of the NYC Leadership Academy as the primary provider of training to prospective New York public school principals and professional development to principals already working in City schools. The NYC Leadership Academy was selected from among multiple vendors through a competitive procurement process and will begin providing services to the Department of Education (DOE) on July 1, 2008.

“At the core of the Children First reforms is the belief that principals must be empowered to make decisions affecting their schools and held accountable for the results their schools achieve,” Chancellor Klein said. “Ensuring that our principals are prepared and supported in this role is critical to student success.”

In order to continue developing and retaining top school leaders, the DOE last April issued a request for proposals from vendors providing a comprehensive principal training program. The NYC Leadership Academy, a nonprofit organization that has trained principals for City schools since 2003 through a private funding agreement ending at the close of the current fiscal year, was one of four vendors to submit proposals for consideration. The NYC Leadership Academy will provide several services to the DOE including residency-based training for educators who want to become principals, on-the-job training for aspiring school leaders already working in City public schools, professional development for principals opening new schools, mentoring for all first-year principals, coaching for experienced principals, workshops and web-based training for principals and their teams, and consulting to senior DOE staff on policy matters regarding school leadership.

The DOE is negotiating a contract expected to last for five years and cost approximately $10 million annually.
