The Building a Better Principal Pipeline to Boost Student Achievement project is a $75-million initiative of the Wallace Foundation.
The goals of the initiative follow:
- Help six urban school districts develop a larger corps of effective school principals
- Determine whether this improves student achievement across the district, especially in the highest needs schools
EDC will work with each school district to assess the quality of its leader training programs using a tool previously developed by EDC with Wallace support. Based on that assessment, EDC will recommend ways to improve principal training to each school district and its training programs.
