District Leaders

Investing In Leadership Drives Student Success

The need for resilient leadership has never been greater.

With record-high turnover rates in education and the urgent need to accelerate student learning, districts need effective, equity-minded leaders who can break down barriers to student success. New Leaders leads the field with evidence of impact. We bring over two decades of experience providing best-in-class leadership training—for teacher leaders, principals, and their supervisors—to accelerate learning for every student in every classroom, every year. 

Discover our leadership development programs and chart a path forward for your district.

Leadership Pathways

Through our Leadership Development Pathways, New Leaders provides an immersive, competency-based training experience that provides school and district leaders at multiple levels—from teacher leaders to principal supervisors—with the interactive tools, instructional strategies, individualized coaching, and community support required to deliver breakthrough results and sustained student outcomes.

National Aspiring Principals Fellowship

Our National Aspiring Principals Fellowship prepares equity-focused teachers for the principal role. An online principal certification program, the Fellowship creates a clear pathway for full-time teachers to move into school leadership. Designed in partnership with two preeminent minority serving institutions—Morehouse College and Clark Atlanta University—the Fellowship honors the experiences and identities of educators of color and develops leaders who remove barriers to student success. Bring the Fellowship to your school system today for better outcomes, more equitable representation, and stronger learning communities.

Principal Coaching

Our Principal Coaching services provide confidential, trusted thought partnership and feedback for individual school leaders. Each coaching session utilizes a cycle of inquiry to drive deep thinking and build the capacity of leaders to reflect, analyze, problem-solve independently, and achieve personal growth goals.

Instructional Leadership Team Summits

Transformational school leaders are the leverage point for moving schools from struggling to great. Strong school leaders can further accelerate their impact on student learning and well-being when working with equally strong instructional leadership teams. In our Instructional Leadership Team Summits (ILT Summits), school teams learn how to work together effectively as they implement and monitor collaborative planning processes designed to accelerate equity and excellence throughout the building.
