EduLead: Regional Partnership for Regional Benefit


Faced with decreasing budgets, principal attrition and the pressure for increased
levels of student performance, school divisions must develop and support leaders who can “do more with less” and are equipped for success when facing the many challenges of school leadership. EduLead promotes a continuum of skilled school leadership through its five programs and regional partnership design. This innovative approach was created to build leadership capacity for aspiring, new, and established educational leaders through a continuum of novel and non-traditional leadership development programs. EduLead’s work represents an example of a highly collaborative school, corporate and university partnership that engages the regional community in the success of schools. Supporting regional efforts ensures a pipeline of skilled school-level leaders and promotes effective succession planning. EduLead’s leadership development activities are made possible through the financial and programmatic support of corporate and Foundation partners who are invested in the success of children in regional K-12 schools.
