      Apply Now to Become an Urban Public School Principal!
      Priority Application Deadline is February 17th, 2009- 2 weeks from today!

      Organization Description:
      Great schools are led by great principals. New Leaders for New
      Schools is a national non-profit that ensures high academic
      achievement for every student by attracting and preparing outstanding
      leaders and supporting the performance of the urban public schools
      they lead. New Leaders currently has 567 leaders serving over 280,000
      students across the nation. Additional information about New Leaders
      for New Schools can be found on our website: www.nlns.org.

      Position Description:
      New Leaders aggressively recruits extremely talented individuals to
      become urban public school principals. Through a combination of
      rigorous coursework delivered by nationally recognized experts, a
      full-time year-long residency with a strong mentor principal, and
      intensive work with successful veteran principals, New Leaders get
      unique preparation to enter the urban principalship. At the end of the
      year, we help place our participants in urban public schools and
      provide them with ongoing support, networking, and a lifelong
      community of peers.

      New Leaders commit to serving in their school districts for 6 years as
      an urban public school principal. In return, New Leaders receive
      approximately $100,000 in coursework, instruction, and support at no
      cost to them. Additionally, residents are paid directly by the school
      districts or charter systems for which they work and receive the same
      salaries and health benefits as assistant principals.

      Our New Leaders are diverse in every respect and come from varied
      backgrounds. However, successful candidates have:
      - An unyielding belief and sense of urgency to ensure that all
      students achieve academically at high levels,
      - A relentless drive to lead an excellent urban public school,
      - Instructional expertise in a K-12 classroom,
      - Exceptional leadership skills, and
      - The ability to achieve in the face of obstacles.

      All applicants must meet our rigorous Selection Criteria
      (http://www.nlns.org/Criteria.jsp). There are minimum application
      requirements that vary by program city, as well. In California’s Bay
      Area, applicants must have:

      - A minimum of 3 years of full-time teaching experience in a
      K-12 classroom
      - A bachelor's degree
      - A California Teaching Credential or an out of state teaching

      Note: Out of state credentials can be transferred to California with
      no additional work

      Potential candidates for the New Leaders program in the Bay Area who
      do not meet the above requirements may still apply if they possess a
      bachelor's degree and have three years of K-12 teaching experience.
      However, if accepted, these candidates will not become certified and
      will only be eligible to become principals in charter schools (where
      certification is not required).
