      NEW LEADERS- Bay Area Public School Principal

      Organization Description:
      Great schools are led by great principals. New Leaders for New
      Schools is a national non-profit that promotes high academic
      achievement for every child by attracting, preparing and supporting
      the next generation of outstanding leaders for our nation's urban
      public schools. 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 a dedicated Leadership Coach, 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. Each New Leader receives three years of
      fully-funded training and support. New Leaders currently has 330
      leaders serving over 165,000 students in Baltimore, California's Bay
      Area, Chicago, Memphis, New York City, and Washington, DC. Additional

      Position Description:
      New Leaders for New Schools strives to build the next generation of
      exceptional school leaders who will ensure that every child achieves
      academic excellence. Once accepted into the New Leaders for New
      Schools program, participants partake in an intensive three year
      program that involves:
      • Summer Foundations—A rigorous six-week training institute with New
      Leaders from across the nation. Taught by outstanding educators and
      national education and business leaders, the program focuses on
      developing instructional and organizational leadership skills.
      • Residency Year—Year-long, full-time, paid residency in an urban
      public school working alongside a mentor principal. With the support
      of a Leadership Coach, residents are full members of school
      leadership teams and are directly responsible for raising student
      achievement and leading teachers. The year also includes intensive,
      academic studies that further develop leadership skills.
      • Ongoing Support and Leadership—New Leaders receive job search
      support and are supported by mentors, coaches, and the entire new
      Leaders Community for the first two years as a principal.
      • Leading and Beyond—Life-long membership and active participation in
      the New Leaders Community, building and supporting our shared
      mission. New Leaders benefit from continual feedback, support, and
      exchange of best practices from the New Leaders network.

      3-4 years as an urban public school principal. In return, New Leaders
      receive approximately $70,000 in coursework, instruction, and support
